    • Synopsis
    • Eusebio Mayalde is a shaman and folklorist who howls like wolves on full moon nights. Nature has decided that it is time to pass on the witness of her wisdom to Zaniki, her eight-year-old grandson. In an initiatory journey, they both go to the mountain, on the edge of the Castilian plateau, to share the most atavistic customs of their land, until Zaniki takes over as the new troubadour of the tradition.
