This is the captivating story of Maria Margarita, a young girl who lives in a mining town nestled in the heart of Chile's Atacama Desert in the 60s. She has a very special gift - an almost uncanny ability to retell movies. Her talent and passion soon spread beyond her impoverished family circle — five siblings and their disabled father confined to a wheel-chair, who can only afford a ticket for one at the local movie theatre - to reach the whole community. People get together to listen Maria Margarita with delight and amusement, so they can forget the harsh routines of their day-to-day lives.
