In an 18th century South American seaport, twelve year old Sierva Maria is bitten by a rabid dog. Thought to be possessed, she is cared for at the convent by Father Cayetano Delaura who had premonitions of her arrival. It is not long before the two of them find themselves in the fevered misery of love. An evocative tale of the most universal experiences known to woman and man. Basis for the upcoming movie.
