Film description

JACINTO is a nine-year-old child trapped in the body of a man near his forties. He lives in Mallou, a decaying and abandoned small village in the middle of the mountains, along with his parents and his dearest pig, Martiño. It's been a long time since the last time he spoke. Something happened when he was a child that shut him up for good. Jacinto spends his days playing in the woods, going to church on Sundays, watching old vampire movies and visiting his secret spot: an abandoned Seat 127 hidden in the mountain. His mother, Maruja, adores him and makes sure he has everything he needs. His Father, Amancio, is a retired legionnaire that wants to maintain the discipline at home. And Millan, his younger brother, left the village to live in town some years ago, and only comes back when he is looking for money. They are the Becerra family.
