Spanish drama written and directed by Jonathan Cenzual Burley. The film follows middle-aged shepherd Anselmo Garcia (Miguel Martín) as his home and livelihood come under threat from property developers. His refusal to bow to their pressure and sell brings him into conflict with not only the developers, who want to purchase the land to build residential housing, but also his neighbours Paco (Juan Luis Sara) and Julian (Alfonso Mendiguchía), who are eager to get their share of the profits in return for their own land.
