Amalia, a young nurse working in the hospital of a small village in the Andes mountains, hires an old house. The rent is low and the house is lovely, but her dog Simon is extremely agitated and at night there are a lot of strange sounds...
This story is riddled with mysterious events that make you feel increasingly uncomfortable. Tension builds and for a long time it is unclear whether all will be well in the end. It contains some beautiful yet everyday descriptions of Amalia, her dog Simón, the village where she lives and of her work.
