An expatriate French couple (Denis Ménochet and Marina Foïs) operate an organic farm in the Spanish countryside. However, their earnest enthusiasm reeks of patronizing privilege to the handful of “hill people” families who have toiled on the land for generations. Tensions between locals and foreigners boil over in this edge-of-your-seat thriller.
