With the collaboration of


In the midst of Castile’s endless fields of grain swaying in the wind, in a place further than the eye can see, is a sleepy town where Francisco, an entrepreneur in the meat processing business, has set up his slaughterhouse. He imports cheap, low-grade pigs from Portugal and then sells them off. His brother-in-law, Alfonso, works in the slaughterhouse. A veterinarian by profession, Alfonso is a weak and cowardly man who deep down is tired of looking the other way, certifying animals of dubious quality. What Alfonso doesn’t know is that a number of these animals are carriers for drugs. An unexpected situation will upend his anodyne life.
