"Orson West"

Synopsis

A film crew arrives in a borderland village in Spain to film a low-budget western, which changes the daily routine of its inhabitants, especially that of a group of young boys. The film represents the return of Sonia to her homeland, because she comes back home to play the leading role in the film. However, this is not the first time that the cinema industry has explored these lands. Fifty years before, Orson Welles wanted to shoot a western in the same area. Inspired by this story, Fran Ruvira searches for the phantom remains of this western, which was never made, and wants to finish the work as a form of expression.
