Luz's Motives

Los motivos de Luz

Directed by Felipe Cazals
Mexico, 1985


Luz is in jail, accused of murdering her own children. Her husband and her mother-in-law say she killed them in cold blood. Dr. Rebollar tries to help the woman, but she refuses to remember anything. Luz thinks of jail as the purgatory: it’s only one step to reach the Heaven.
