Like a Chilean Edith Piaf or Bob Dylan, Violeta Parra was a folksinger and pop culture icon whose songs expressed the soul of her nation and protested social injustice. The film traces Parra’s extraordinary evolution, from impoverished child to international sensation to Chile’s national hero, while capturing the swirling intensity of her inner contradictions, fallibilities and passions. The film moves beyond linear biography to unearth the elusive, charged core of this magnetic character. Violeta’s heart-wrenching, indelible songs permeate the film and will penetrate the viewer’s soul.

He marries to leave the nomadic life behind, but when his wife dies, he vows to never play the accursed accordion again.
