La Hacienda

A married interracial Latino/White couple arrives in Mexico during the Day of the Dead, a day of remembrance for those who've died, to renovate a dream hacienda owned by her parents that's haunted by not only the couple's own past but also the murderous pasts of its former owners, who have been forgotten by their loved ones, for very good reason.
