A village on the border between Galicia and Portugal, hidden deep in the woods, a world out of time.Documentary moments of everyday life stand alongside dramatized scenes acted by the villagers working in the fields, sitting in the pub, singing traditional songs in the local dialect and telling old tales.Scenes of their own lives are interwoven with quotes from the play O bosque (The Woods) by the Galician writer Marinhas del Valle, a parable about the Franco dictatorship.When a fire breaks out in the woods, there are growing signs of an impending apocalypse.Arraianos is a film about remembering and the disappearance of a way of life.
