Synopsis by Mark Deming
A man trying to clear his conscience of a terrible crime goes on a spiritual quest in this ambitious drama from Mexico. Damian Alcazar plays an American artist who was responsible for a hit-and-run accident. Unable to shake the burden of responsibility from his soul, the artist leaves behind his wife and travels to Mexico to visit the grave of his grandmother. Along the way, however, he decides this gesture is not enough, and abandoning his car and leaving sculptured offerings along the way, he makes his way into the mountains where he tries to find the cave paintings of Baja and discover a sense of spiritual peace. Bajo California: El Limite Del Tiempo/Under California: The Limit Of Time was the directorial debut of former editor Carlos Bolado, who cut the international hit Como Agua Para Chocolate).
