in a remote village outside of time called El Eco, children care for sheep and their grandparents.
As winter and drought hit the place, they learn with every act, word and silence of their parents to understand death, work and love.
A story about the echo of things that stick to the soul, about the certainty of the shelter we can find with those around us, about rebellion and vertigo in the face of life. About growing up.
