En_el_nombre_de_la_hija-188965329-largeKarl Marx’s famous quotation “Religion is the opium of the people” is one of the ‘odd’ ideas nine-year-old Manuela confronts her ultra-catholic family with, while she tries to teach her little cousins the basic principles of communism… It is the summer of 1976 in a valley of the Andes Mountains in Ecuador. Manuela, educated according to the communist and atheistic ideals of her beloved father, believes her parents to be on a revolutionary mission in Colombia, while she and her five-year-old brother Camilo have to spend the summer at their grandparents’ farmhouse. Of course, in a catholic-conservative household a nine-year-old’s Marxist world outlook will cause trouble. Manuela eagerly defends her father’s political and philosophical ideas, unwilling to obey her grandmother’s conservative rules.
