The case concerns a teenage girl whose naked body is found at the side of the Baztán river close to little town of Elizondo, Amaia's birthplace, a rainy village surrounded by forests and mounts located in the middle of Baztán's valley, full of local myths and ancient superstitions. Her marriage to James Westford, an American sculptor and artist gallery, is falling apart due to her desire for a child, and despite she never wanted back to her family home, Amaia Salazar is forced to face the past and reconnect with her lovely and tarot's card caster Aunt Engrasi, and too with her older sisters Flora and Rosaura.

Trivia

In Basque mythology, Basajaun (Lord of the Woods) is a huge, hairy hominid dwelling in the woods. They were thought to build megaliths, protect flocks of livestock, and teach skills such as agriculture and ironworking to humans. See more »

Goofs

(at around 1h 1 min) During the Mass scene when Our Father (or Lord's Prayer) is prayed in Basque, the priest says "egin bedi zure gogoa lurrean bezala zeruan ere" which means "Thy will be done on heaven as it is in earth". He should have said "egin bedi zure gogoa zeruan bezala lurrean ere". The words "heaven" (zeru) and "earth" (lurra) are used in the wrong order. See more »

This is a great TRILOGY
28 April 2020 | by diegogzzsSee all my reviews

For anyone confused as to why there are so many plot lines left unfinished, they are addressed in the second movie. This trilogy is based on a book, adding mystical elements which may seem confusing at first. Would definitely recommend watching the rest before jumping to conclusions. Amazing cinematography, along with a good portrayal of Spain, showing us an urban legend while keeping it a great thriller !
