In a colonisation village built under Francoism, the inhabitants settle on an empty plot once occupied by the open-air cinema.

History unfolds forwards and backwards: through gestures, actions and objects, the original colonisation process is replicated. Meanwhile, sitting outside their houses and leaning out of windows, some neighbours get some fresh air and chat. The village is reinterpreted by local mythology: the unique architecture and the eucalyptus forest that surrounds it acquire new meanings.
