A trip to the south of Spain searching the ruins of Comala, a small  village that shares its name with a fictional town, that was invented by the Mexican writer Juan Rulfo in his novel "Pedro Páramo". This short film is a journey between two towns, one fictional and another real.
The director takes the voice of the novel and he goes to the landscape of his family to think about belonging, myth and memory. Like in the twin cities described by Italo Calvino, Ruvira offers a game between the local legend and history, literature and life, the voices of the present and the echoes of the past...
