A bourgeois middle-aged dentist named Veronica drives alone on a dirt road, becomes distracted, and runs over something. Immediately, she becomes disoriented, unmoored from her identity and reality—like a sleepwalker who’s actually awake. As the weeks go on, she becomes obsessed with the possibility that she may have killed someone. Veronica tries to piece together what happened while her husband systematically erases her tracks. Martel’s third feature explores the intricacies of class and the role of women in a male-dominated society. In Spanish with English subtitles. Contains mature content.
