Τhe film explores the landscape of human resistance. Following the 2007 crisis, a group of neighbors in the working class area of Granada transformed a dumping ground at the edge of the city into a physical product of resistance. The orchard- located within a ravine 10km away from the mass graves of the Spanish civil war where Garcia Lorca was murdered- is a free space where marginalized people turn the earth every day: a place where there is order without politics and faith without religion. The film follows Antonio, Santiago and Oscar, three friends rooted deeply inside that soil from where they are able to re-imagine their lives and challenge the practical limitations of their social and historical circumstances.
