After the death of her legendary grandfather, Don Luis Gonzalez, Andrea, a struggling Dominican artist living in New York returns to the island to fulfill her grandfather’s last wish: to scatter his ashes on his favorite beach. However, to do so she will have to embark on an off-thegrid road trip with her immature father she hasn’t spoken to in five years and uncover family secrets when they end up in a ruthless town of cock fights, spells and midnight rituals.
