High in the Cordillera Blanca mountains of Peru, a sweet-faced 14-year-old indigenous girl named Madeinusa is the victim of abuse that escalates every Good Friday to Easter Sunday, when sin is in and morals take an official holiday. One day, a young geologist comes to town. Can he save her? Can he break a cycle of cruel exploitation?
