SYNOPSIS The myth of María Lionza, the goddess of Venezuela, merges with the experience of a migrant filmmaker who yearns for her lost Goddess. Over two decades of filming, the movie unveils the different facets of the fracture of the iconic Goddess statue amidst a Caracas marked by acute political and social divisions. Different times come together to explore a rupture that is not just that of a statue. It is the story of Venezuela and of every Venezuelan who feels torn by a war that never belonged to them. It is also the wound of those who live in the nowhere of a migrant life.
