Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
Ironically titled "Saint Hope," this strange, downbeat drama about a prison camp in a fictitious South American country offers no hope at all. The prison is somewhere in the middle of a desert, and it is likely that the inmates are there for political reasons. Life is dreary and goes by slowly in spite of a few attempts at escape. When the action does heat up a little, the story gets more interesting though even that promise is short-lived. Whatever his intentions, Chilean director Sebastian Alarcon is definitely not encouraging tourism to the southern half of the Americas.
