The Woman of Stars and Mountains recounts the story of Rita, an indigenous woman from Mexico. Rita left her mountain community in northern Mexico and embarked on a journey to Kansas. There, she was involuntarily detained and confined in a psychiatric hospital for 12 years because the hospital authorities could not ascertain her identity, origins, or the language she spoke. Upon the discovery of the truth, Rita returned to live in the Sierra Tarahumara. Her niece, Juanita, cared for her. The documentary delves into the lives of these two women and explores the solidarity and affection that people have even in unexpected situations.
