Fausta (Magaly Solier) is weighed down by a disease passed to her from her mother. The Milk of Sorrow seeped in to her while being breast fed by her mother during the fearful days in Peru of the reign of terror caused by the conflict between Sendero Luminosa and parliamentary troops . Now her mother’s sudden death has left Fausta like a boat with out a sail in the high seas. The situation forces her to fight the “disease” in her own unique way. A film and an actress that seem straight out of a Gabriel Garcia Marquez novel.
