It is the middle of October, in the city of Lima, Peru. This is “the purple month”. The time to commemorate the Lord of Miracles, the most widely venerated image of Christ in the city, with many processions going on around downtown. Rosa Chumbe is a mature police officer with both a gambling and a drinking problem. She lives with her daughter Sheyla, who has a little baby. One day, after a big fight between them, Sheyla steals her mother’s savings and storms out of the house leaving her baby behind. Rosa is forced to spend some time with her grandson. Something changes inside her heart of stone. However, everything takes a wrong turn one night. Only a miracle can save her.
