1909. Miguel, a young school teacher, is stationed at a small mountain village on the border between Spain and Portugal: Lobosandaus, an inhospitable place with ancestral traditions. He is a man of reason, but he cannot control his passionate desires and, as winter approaches, he feels darkness take hold of everything around him as his fascination with the enigmatic Dorinda grows. In a place dominated by superstition, the strange death of a village neighbour releases a free spirit in search of a body that will enable him to continue his existence.
