Anselmo, a middle age shepherd, lives a poor but happy life in a small, run down house in a middle of the Spain plains, near a small, but growing village.
His dog Pillo and his sheep are his only company.
A life bucolic enough for him to ignore the offers he receives from a construction company who wants to buy his house and land to build a new residential complex.
Conflicting against Anselmo’s unwillingness to sell is Julian and Paco’s greed, the owners of the neighboring lands, who only answer to their own interests.
A bloody metaphor of the greed to corrodes these who do not answer to reason in their quest to get what they want, and the inevitable, but violent consequences of their actions.
