Fictional storyteller María Margarita makes her living re-enacting cinema classics for a remote nitrate mining community. But when synthetics replace the natural resource, and television renders María’s profession obsolete, will anything remain beyond her fantasies of the silver screen and the ghosts of her abandoned town? Teatrocinema’s collective mimetic dream brings the magic of movies to enchanting life onstage.
