Winner of a Cannes Jury Prize, this haunting slow-burn drama follows ex-con Amador returning home to live with his elderly mother after serving time in prison for arson. As an outbreak of fires encroaches on his community, he struggles to readjust to rural life under the watchful eyes of the villagers.
Rendering the richly forested Galician countryside with a patient, painterly eye, the film’s meditative silences and smoldering embers presage an ominous future ahead.
