Amador  Coro has been condemned for having provoked a fire. When he gets out of  prison, nobody is waiting for him. He returns to his home town, a small  village hidden in the mountains of rural Galicia, to live with his  mother, Benedicta, and their three cows. Life goes by, following the  rhythm of nature. Until one night when a fire starts to devastate the  region.

Strikingly beautiful, meditative, elusive.

- Wendy Ide, Screen Saily

Occupies an almost uncategorizable cinematic realm.

- Diego Semerene, Slant Magazine

Breathtaking... An elegant, metaphorical fusion of physical and mental landscapes.

- Azadeh Jafari, Cinema Scope

One of  the ten best films of 2019... Laxe's sparse, ambiguous character study  of a Galician arsonist proves as withholding as its reticent  protagonist.

- James Quandt, Artforum

Mesmeric... confirms all the poised formal promise of You Are All Captains and Mimosas, while bringing greater depth and generosity of human observation to his rich, abundant mood-harvesting.

- Guy Lodge, Variety
