The inhabitants of a small, secluded village, in a mountainous valley in Spain, find their monotonous lives transformed by the unexpected arrival of a mysterious foreigner. While he quietly works to uncover the truth behind a personal tragedy, a few of the locals are convinced he has come to reopen the local shop where he stays, that he is there to breathe new life into a dying community.

    "Meaney, still best known as Chief O’Brien on Star Trek: The Next Generation despite years of strong supporting work in cinema, is effortlessly understated, conveying bafflement and amusement with just the right gestures and glances."
