Documentary / English, Galician

A mysterious disappearance looms over a crumbling Spanish village.

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 remote Spanish village of Santoalla, the foreigners challenge the traditions of the Rodríguez family, the only remaining residents, igniting a decade-long conflict that culminates in Martin’s disappearance. A thriller-like documentary that will keep you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end! [PG]
