The House of the Spirits follows three generations of the Trueba family — their loves, their ambitions, their spiritual quests, and their place in the post-colonial social and political turmoil embroiling South America. This darkly poetic adaptation incorporates magical realism to weave the personal and the political into a universal story of love, magic, and fate.
