Virgin of Juarez
The Virgin Of Juarez recounts the story of Karina Danes (Minnie Driver), a Los Angeles-based reporter investigating the killings of hundreds of young women in the border town of Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. While on assignment, Danes meets Mariela (Ana Claudia Talancon), a rare survivor of one of these vicious attacks. During her recovery, Mariela sees visions of the Virgin Mary and experiences the phenomenon of stigmata, the unpredictable and inexplicable appearance of wounds in her palms that mimic those Christ received when he was nailed to the cross. Mariela and her story soon draw a devout following, and her sermons galvanize a public in need of hope.
