From the director of Perro come perro comes a dark comedy of gruesome proportions. Salvador is a hardworking farmer who pays little attention to the ruckus in the village caused by the mayoral election. On voting day, he heads out to work as usual, only to stumble upon a pile of corpses, like a human crop circle, dumped in the middle of his cornfield. He rushes to report the horrific discovery, only to find that the authorities are seemingly more interested in protecting their reputations than their citizens.

An oblique allegory for a desensitized society...the film blends Beckettian torpor, mordant comedy and earthy absurdism in a way that’s both distancing and bizarrely intriguing. David Rooney

Esta comedia negra cuenta la historia de Salvador, un hombre de campo muy trabajador, quien pone poca atención a las elecciones que se están llevando a cabo en el pueblo. el día de la elección, él llega a su parcela como todas las mañanas, para darse cuenta de que alguien ha arrojado varios cadáveres que se amontonan en medio de sus cultivos de maíz. Salvador, lleno de preocupación va al pueblo a denunciar la masacre, pero las autoridades están más preocupadas en su reputación que en sus ciudadanos.
