Plot SummaryTHE HOUSE OF THE SPIRITS is a cinematic rendering of Isabelle Allende's critically acclaimed magical-realist novel about three generations of a Chilean family. The film investigates the personal and social upheavals that tear apart both family and country--until, in one moment of understanding, the patriarch, spurred by the diaries of his dead wife, renounces his life of power and oppression in an act of unprecedented heroism.
