Directed by Roberto Gavaldón

Set during the colonial era of the Viceroyalty of New Spain, a humble woodcutter becomes the custodian of a miracle cure capable of restoring health to the dying, after sharing a piece of roasted turkey with Death. With direct plot supervision from novelist B. Traven, this brilliantly engaging tale brings together the tragic universe of Gavaldón with the extraordinary photography of Gabriel Figueroa, becoming a fundamental benchmark of great Mexican cinema.
