In a colonisation village built under Francoism, the neighbours settle on an empty plot once occupied by the open-air cinema. The camera and microphone record the settlement process: the movement, the gestures, the conversations and glances, the drawings and the bells tolling; a biker with flowers and two goldfinches; children engrossed by a screen. Some neighbours take in the fresh air and chat. The village is reinterpreted by local mythology: the unique architecture and the eucalyptus forest that surrounds it acquire new meanings.
