| Is it about how was started the myth of "Maria de Guadalupe"?
I accompanied a pair of good friends, so I didn't know about what this movie was (neither I wanted to see it :) ), once that it finished I was positively impressed. I only detected one big and laughable sequence, it is when Maria it is arrested and accused of being a Witch by that despicable Father Cuña, the entire sequence seemed to have been shot with a Handheld Camcorder, even I would have obtained a still shot, well.

Maria is a mestizo woman who is deprived of her passion: science, books, the stars, her flowers. Because all these are things that are of no concern for a woman, after having received a vision from her indian ancestors she decides to follow a new cause: to take care of the indians, she and the other sisters of her religious order take care of a nearby indian village, and soon the word it is spread among the poor indians because she takes care of them as a loving mother, they begin to call her "Divine ray of light". This calls the attention of the now Bishop Cuña (he did a capital offense to achieve the degree of Bishop) and accuses her of wizardry and insurrection and gets her burned.

All the indians attend to her execution and there a myth it is born...At once a priest takes advantage of it: "We must order to paint an image of her!"
