World Premiere

In Spanish and Italian with English subtitles.

A brash Sicilian soldier on his way to the Spanish Civil War falls through the sky and into the present-day wine country of Salamanca, where he is greeted with good news and bad. The good: His army won the war. The bad: His lover, Isabella, along with life as he knew it, are all lost to the past 75 years, which for him are mere secondsold memories. As the solider struggles to make 21st-century sense of a bizarro world where hybrid cars are now parked in front of castles, he becomes increasingly intent on finding a way back onto the more familiar battlefields of 1937. Director Jonathan Cenzual Burley (Soul of Flies) festoons his second feature with a host of colorful characters, all sharing dry and witty words of wisdom amid the fable-like cinematic style for which Burley is quickly becoming known.
