In this musical western, Los Hermanos Cubero travel back to their roots in La Alcarria, in central Spain. On the way, the two brothers play songs evoking their vanished homeland. A sensual poem to the art of these musicians’ music and the world captured in their songs, filled with footsteps, silences and intensely personal popular music.
