Winner of the Austin Film Festival Documentary Feature Jury Award. Presented as part of the AFF Jury Award Series.
Progressive Dutch couple Martin and Margo had only one dream: to live off the land, far from the constraints and complications of the city. But when they arrive in the crumbling Spanish village of Santoalla, the foreigners challenge the traditions of the town’s sole remaining family, igniting a decade-long conflict that culminates in Martin’s mysterious disappearance. As this once forgotten landscape is thrust into the center of controversy, Margo finds herself searching not only for answers, but for the strength to persevere.
