In the countryside of Chile, a man lives with his mother on a farm. One day, he comes across a bone on his land that has a hole in it and can be used to play like a flute. The song that comes out of this almost beckons him to search for the rest of the bones of the body – and to finally give it a Christian burial. Originally created as a mini-series for Chilean television, Ruiz later shortened La Recta provincia to a still three-hour version for the cinema – with which he floods his audience with folklore, dreams and dry humour, according to all the rules of a spiritually-inspired game of confusion.
