Anna, Julia, and Marion return to their childhood home in Madrid after their father’s death, still feeling the weight of his domineering influence. Julia believes that before the house can sell, it needs to be cleared of negative energy, and she has planned a limpieza, or cleaning ritual. Marion fears what the ceremony might unleash. Anna is skeptical of the Cuban santera Julia hired. As the ceremony progresses, guilt and recrimination become impossible to ignore. And if there’s a chance of bringing their lives out of the shadows, it rests in the sisterhood, strength, and indomitable love that remains when the ghosts of the past surrender at last.
