A chronicle about a village in the south of Spain that reflects the greater story of man.
Beneath the apparent village harmony, there is an undercurrent of lethargy, pain, personal drama, betrayal and hidden political conflicts. These form part of the everyday lives of the villagers. The suppressed frustration only seems to surface when an outsider asks for their stories.
