Sypnosis

As ETA announces its disbandment, Bittori (Elena Irureta) visits her husband Txato’s grave, murdered by ETA terrorists, to inform him of her decision to return home. Can she coexist with those who harassed her before and after the attack that shattered their lives? Can she find out who the hooded figure was who killed her husband? Bittori’s presence disrupts the false tranquility of the town, especially for her neighbor Miren (Ane Gabarain), a former close friend and mother of Joxe Mari (Jon Olivares), an imprisoned terrorist and suspect of Bittori’s worst fears. What happened between these two women? The story of their lives before and after Txato’s death speaks to the impossibility of forgetting and the need for forgiveness in a community torn apart by political fanaticism.
