Documentary filmmaker Mercedes Alvarez returns to the tiny village in rural Spain where she was born, to examine the lives of its 14 present inhabitants. However, both the filmmaker and the elderly villagers take the long-term view of the area, reaching back to a nearby siege during the Roman Empire and tracing the land's history through the intervening centuries, including the Inquisition, the Spanish Civil War of the 1930s and the area's new Arabic and North African immigrants.
