Manufacturer's product description

Three teenagers are wary about holding up a rather disturbing family tradition in writer and director Jorge Michel Grau's unusual blend of horror, suspense and family drama, WE ARE WHAT WE ARE (SOMOS LO GUE HAY). Alfredo (Francisco Barreiro), Julian (Alan Chavez) and Sabina (Paulina Gaitan) live with their father (Humberto Yanez) and mother (Carmen Beato) in a run-down section of Mexico City. When father dies unexpectedly during a visit to a shopping mall, it throws the family into chaos, but not just for the usual reasons. The family has an unusual custom in which father would capture a stranger and bring them home, after which the family would kill the stranger in an elaborate ritual and then eat their flesh. With father gone, mother insists that it's time the children stepped up and took over the rite, but Alfredo is too timid to find a proper victim, Julian is bold but too clumsy, and Sabina is thought to be poorly suited for what's always been a man's job. As the brothers try to learn to do things the way dad once did, a police detective (Jorge Zarate) is trying to get to the bottom of a long string of disappearances in the area.
