At the end of the Basque conflict in 2011, when the ETA announces their ceasefire, a young woman goes on the run to escape political persecution, hoping to cross the border. She arrives at a quiet border village, Zubieta - a place where time appears to stand still, and she waits, as all the while the weight of her situation hangs around her.
Shot with a largely non-professional cast of Zubieta residents, the directing group Colectivo Negu presents a hazy glimpse of realism in a place where history is heavy but rarely addressed. SE
