Synopsis in English

Humberto’s greatest desire, after his recent release from prison, is to rebuild his relationship with his estranged daughter and provide her with a decent life. But her grandparents—wealthy Evangelical pastors—are not willing to give up custody. Bullied into a corner financially and ideologically, Humberto is forced to face his own demons while simultaneously fighting a powerful ecclesiastical institution to which he once belonged. Set in the central Bolivian city of Cochabamba, “The Visitor” is a somber meditation on class, family relationships, and the increasing power of Evangelism in Latin America.

Acorralado financieramente e ideológicamente, Humberto se ve obligado a enfrentarse a sus propios demonios mientras lucha contra una poderosa institución eclesiástica a la que una vez perteneció. Ambientada en la ciudad boliviana de Cochabamba, “El visitante” es una meditación sombría sobre las diferencias de clase, las relaciones familiares y el poder creciente del evangelismo en América Latina.
