Plot & Details
With an earnest narrative that suggests a lighter version of such man-against-the-system efforts as Erin Brockovich and A Civil Action, Jose Antonio Quieros's drama Cenizas del cielo (Ashes from the Sky) stars Celso Bugallo as Federico, a gentleman who has spent the better part of thirty years living in a quaint, lyrical valley all but ruined by the presence of one element - the local nuclear power plant. After three decades of protesting the plant's presence in vain, he receives word of the Kyoto Agreement, a new law that may just play an instrumental role in closing the plant down.
