Synopsis

In the mountains in the south of Chile, a small group of elderly women resist the project of the construction of a gigantic dam that will stop the flow of the Bio-Bio River and flood the lands where their ancestors have lived for centuries. Berta Quinterman is one of these women, the leader of the resistance. A woman of unique character, Berta lives alone and modestly, and respects the traditions of her people. At the same time she resists the authorities and the government.
