139 Minutes

Director: Rodrigo Sorogoyen

Based on real events, Denis Ménochet and Marina Foïs play a married couple whose dream of moving to the countryside turns into a living nightmare in Rodrigo Sorogoyen’s hugely suspenseful fourth feature. After moving to a small village in Spain’s Northwest, Antione and Olga’s peaceful life is drastically uprooted. When they are approached by Norwegian developers who are willing to pay the residents of the neighbourhood to build a wind farm on their property, Antione and Olga are the only residents who vote against the development. This sparks anger in two local brothers whose rising tempers push the situation to the point of no return.
