The inhabitants of a small village lost in the woodlands between Galicia and Portugal live and work in a quiet routine. From time to time, brief conversations arise amongst them. Surrounded by an endless forest, incapable of finding a way out, the Arraianos ask themselves about the reasons for their confinement, wondering if such things as sunlight, free will or a horizon really exist. One day, a stranger arrives; the possibility of change, a way out, a means of purification… What is left after the end, when all has been consumed?
Somewhere between reality and fable, the Arraianos play out their lives to make a portrait of the rural world and its obstinate resistance to disappear, a picture of life as it is.


Eloy Enciso Cachafeiro, born. 1975 in Meira, Galicia (Spain). Studied documentary film at the International Film School of San Antonio de los Baños, Cuba. Arraianos is his second feature film.
