A young teenager and his family are haunted by a mythic forest creature in Argentina

Description

After experiencing relentless bullying, Nino and his family decide to spend the summer in a remote countryside house in Argentina. This new location is surrounded by a mysterious forest and situated in a conservative Catholic town. Unfortunately, Nino finds himself unable to escape the suffocating grip of the traditions that drove him out in the first place. All the while, Nino begins to see visions of the titular mythic monster who haunts the forest.

With temptation and curiosity around every corner, Nino wonders how long it will take before this creature pushes his desires to the breaking point. Director Juan Sebastián Torales captures the turmoil of adolescence in ALMAMULA with a dark sense of humor and unflinching honesty to produce a truly beguiling narrative.
