Based on the notorious true story of Íngrid Olderöck, BESTIA employs unsettling stop-motion animation to enter the life of a secret-police agent working in Chile during the military dictatorship. The relationships she has with her dog, her body, her fears, and frustrations reveal a macabre fracture in both her mind and country.
