A headstrong teenager seeks out her estranged father after her mother passes away, and falls into a forbidden romance while confronting the ghosts of the past. Eighteen-year-old Maria never met her father, but when her mother is taken from her in a car accident, the time comes to seek out the only family she has left. Venturing into the Dominican Republic, Maria finds her drunken father Joaquín residing in a derelict, reportedly haunted house on an old banana plantation. Aside from the mysterious Haitian who shares the house with him, Joaquín lives a hermitic lifestyle and mainly keeps to himself. Later, Maria's budding romance with a handsome young Puerto Rican sends Joaquín into an outrage, and threatens to destroy her desperate journey of self discovery.
