After his father's suicide, 22 year old Santiago decides to leave the harsh winters of Peru's capital Lima, in favour of the warmer climes of Máncora on the country's north coast. Upon leaving, he recieves a surprise visit from his beautiful stepsister Ximena and her husband Inigo. The three of them set out on a journey in an attempt to escape reality and find themselves.
MÁNCORA is an intelligent and engaging drama that speaks to young people in a characteristically direct fashion.
