About:
Neighbors in a remote idyllic community face off with dire consequences.

I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
Seeking a quieter life without rules, Martin and Margo leave the bustle of Amsterdam to set up a farm in Santoalla, located in remote Spanish Galicia. Like many rural communities, the crumbling village has seen its population dwindle. When the Dutch couple arrives, the only other residents are their neighbors, the Rodríguez family. Initial friendliness soon gives way to disagreements and then a full-fledged feud that lasts a decade… until Martin’s mysterious disappearance. Becker and Mehrer expertly craft a whodunnit with a limited number of suspects in this surprising, atmospheric true crime tale.
