    • Synopsis
    • Oscar (Rodrigo Sáenz de Heredia) works as a security guard at a semi-abandoned salt mine. His lonely days consist of riding his bike to work, putting on his uniform, strapping on his gun and contemplating the mountains of salt.
      Oscar's routine is interrupted when his aging grandfather (Salvador Gavilán Ramos) is moved from a home to the hospital and Oscar discovers that his sister, Maria (Verónica Echegui), whom he hasn't heard from in two years, will be coming to Almeria. To his bewilderment she arrives pregnant and with a boyfriend, Jean (Dennis Deyri). The tension between brother and sister is silent but palpable. Something happened in their past that has left its mark. Maria wants to move on. Oscar does not.
