With the desire to improve their lives, the men of Huajun de Len emigrate without realizing that they are destroying that which they want to save: their families. This is the story of Diamantina and Araceli, two young women from the Oaxacan Mixtec who watch their men, Santiago and Macario, leave for the north in search of a better life. Santiago tries to raise money in order to marry Diamantina, whose father abides by the tradition of a marriage dowry. Macario is looking to alleviate his familys poverty. When the men return to the village they try to recover what they had left behind, but things are no longer the same. Spiral is a generational story about patriarchal society, the power of community and family and the role of women who become the head of the family.
A love story that explores with beautiful cinematography and complex characters the archaic social and moral codes that still prevail in the small towns of Mexico.
In Spanish with Englis subtitles.
