Mixing magic and comedy with romanticism, The Black Virgin
begins with Manita, who is concerned because her husband hasn't
had sex with her in months. She decides to visit a mysterious
woman, Lurdita, who is believed to be a witch. Lurdita asks
Manita to change the virgin of the church to The Black Virgin.
Behind everybody's back and with the approval of Isabel, the
founder of the town, The Black Virgin becomes their new patron.
Strange things now begin to happen in this fishing village
changing the routine of its inhabitants: there is no longer
darkness, the violence is stopped, and people fall in love
again. Lurdita (who is believed to be the builder of The Black
Virgin) leaves the town saying others might need her help. One
morning, kids are playing baseball and a ball gets hit so hard
that it breaks the image of the Black Virgin. Concerns arise
again in the town as things begin to change once more.
