Virago (2019)

Feature film | Comedy Duration 15:54


A man falls off a roof. Another one drowns. Another catches fire. “May God rest their souls,” sigh the widows as they cross themselves somberly. This is the life and the death of the men in Virago — a village where for centuries no man has lived long enough to see his fortieth birthday. Until today.
