Humanitarian movie producer Costa (Luis Tosar) is shooting a biopic about Christopher Columbus and his exploitation of native Americans. He and his director Sebastian (Gael Garcia Bernal) choose Bolivia because they can find cheap help. As they mock Columbus' religious motivation, the production team is blind to their own treatment of their poverty stricken employees.
Unlike the blatant slice-and-dice action of **Scream 4,** **Tambien La Lluvia** presents passive aggressive horror inflicted upon the poor. While filming their Columbus opus, the production crew learns that a mean corporate entity plans on privatizing the water supply. This backstage drama is played out against the production of the motion picture. Unlike the solid conclusion of **Scream 4,** **Tambien La Lluvia** concludes upon lyrical symbolism that is more meaningful.
