Strange lights appear in the desert night. Residents' vivid descriptions of what they have seen weave together a shared story told in many voices. The night isn’t as dark as it seems and the desert is full of all kinds of living beings who find their place in the emptiness. Luces del desierto invites us to open our eyes and ears to take in the sounds hidden in the twilight. A horror movie set in the dark desert.
