An unforgettable revenge story from legendary Carlos Saura.
In a small Spanish village, the hatred of a decades-long feud between the Jiménez and Fuentes families, that began with the murder of Amadeo Jiménez (Juan Sanz) at the hands of Jerónimo Fuentes (Ramon Fontserè), still lingers. Years later, Jerónimo has served his prison sentence but immediately attacks Amadeo’s brother, José (José Garcia), upon release. Unaware of the feud’s full history, José’s eldest daughter, Isabel (Yohana Cobo), is determined to find the truth behind these violent events.
