Pine forest. A Spanish town stopped in time. A traditional, masculine ritual celebrated for years. A femicide happened there. The director returns to the Spanish town of her great-grandparents to inquire about a story that has always eluded her and is now beginning to unveil. A dark family secret that was kept for a long time: that of “The house of Spain”.
