Placed in the Spanish desert, in the small village Tabernas which used to be for decades the shooting place of ﬁlms like "Once Upon A Time" and "Lawrence of Arabia". But as time has passed by and the economical crisis took over, the village lost all its glamour, the citizens their jobs. All of a sudden a new big ﬁlm production staring a famous shimmering Hollywood star comes into town. For few people a new light of hope shows up, a new chance to escape the rough reality of their daily lives.
