Helena and Ivan, a young urban couple, set out to build a new life in the cork-tree forests. Their search for a quieter lifestyle in an idyllic setting appears destined for success. But once their dream new existence is confronted with the precarious conditions of immigrant agricultural workers in the region, the couple is suddenly embraced with a dilemma that will show their true individual human nature and put their love through the ultimate test. Mikel Guerrea’s confident and striking debut feature is one of the year’s big success of Spanish cinema, having received the Fipresci and Best Basque Film Awards at the last edition of the San Sebastian Film Festival, as well as the Gaudi Award for Best New Director, and Best Lead Actress and Actor for the wonderful performances by Vicky Luengo and Pol López.
