Description
In sleepy Vidreres, a Catalonian village suffering a deadening recession, prostitutes sit along the highway and two teenage boys have just died a horrible death. After attending their funeral, a banker named Ernest heads out to the spot where their car collided with a tree. Trying to come to terms with the accident, he meets a brutish trucker named Miqui who takes him to two sweet whores. So begins Ernests journey into the dark depths of this unfathomable loss. Meanwhile, Miqui has his own plans, which involve a striking young woman and his senile fathers shotgun.
