Director: Ventura Pons
A family experiences two traumatic events in a lapse of forty-odd years: the loss of one of the family members and how this affects the others; and the arrival of new neighbors, strangers, who upset the family and supposed social harmony.
The fragility of family relations, the passage of time, the meaning of existence and, above all, fear and mistrust of the unfamiliar (the stranger, the foreigner, the outsider, the other…) shakes the sensible mentality of these traditional people.
We discover that the true strangers are not these neighbors from another culture but we ourselves, who are so reluctant to integrate into our families, our everyday reality, our awareness and our affection.
