"There'll be a flash in the village, a really mighty, mighty one and everything will change…" Isa uses a cassette recorder to record messages to herself for when she disappears or loses her memory. Cita feels trapped in a marriage in a house full of saints and virgins. María returns to the town where she was born to face her loneliness. The women of a small rural town, suspended in time and whipped by depopulation, live between the apathy of their quotidian life where nothing extraordinary happens and a deep desire for liberating experiences that makes them rediscover the place where they believe they were happy or dreamed of being happy. "...the composed feature is laced with touches of suspense, rural surrealism, social realism and Almodovar-style humor." – Variety (Ainhoa Rodríguez, 2021, DCP, Spanish with English subtitles, 98 minutes)
