SLEEPLESS KNIGHTS
STEFAN BUTZMÜHLEN & CRISTINA DIZ

  • Synopsis
  • Cast & Crew

Like every year, Carlos spends his summer with his family in Extremadura. In this town, where the elders still celebrate the medieval rites of driving the evil forces out of the village, Carlos meets a young policeman named Juan and falls for him. A friendship ensues amidst the problems of rural exodus and unemployment among young people, amidst age-old rituals and a crisis of a nation, all set against a spectacular backdrop which seems somehow not of this world.
