The title of this Chilean melodrama translates as The House is Empty. The house in question is a dilapidated mansion, overseen by elderly Daniel (Ernesto Vilches). When an artist and his model are forced into the house...展开by a storm, Daniel relates the building's melancholy history. The central characters in the flashback sequences are Carlos (Alejandro Flores) and Jorge (Horacio Peterson), two brothers who have good reason to despise one another. The tragedy resulting from this rivalry dominates the closing reels of this dark-and-stormy film.
