Anxo returns to his home village in the Galician countryside. There, he is greeted with concern by the victorious and the defeated, who see in him the danger of diving back into their silenced memories.

A journey through three decades of Franco’s dictatorship: an ensemble film made up of the tales of those who went through a dark period after the war questioning the value of their individual choices. Driven by the disconcerting performance of amateur actors, with emblematic and suggestive faces, the film opens up to a cosmic dimension in which the voice of the resistance stands out against the mysterious landscape of Galicia. (Daniela Persico, Locarno Film Festival)
