French couple Antoine and Olga have fulfilled their dream of moving to the Galician countryside, setting up their own small farm. Their refusal to sell their land to developers has created tensions with local brothers Xan and Loren, who want the money for a chance at a new life. Tensions boil over after an act of sabotage leads to increasingly tense and violent confrontations between the neighbours.

Rodrigo Sorogoyen’s engrossing thriller is a slow-burn in the best possible way. Aided by remarkably naturalistic performances, this is a methodical film where the tension builds and builds in a manner that’s utterly compelling. It’s no surprise it dominated at Spain’s Goya film awards, where it won in nine categories including Best Film.
