In a remote valley of the Aragonese Pyrenees, the legend of Armugán is told. It is said that he is dedicated to a mysterious and terrifying profession, the likes of which no one dares to speak. They say that Armugán moves through the valleys clinging to the body of his faithful servant Anchel, and together they share the secret of a discipline as old as life and as terrible as death itself. As an end-of-life doula, Armugán spends his days ushering those in the mountainous community he wanders onto their final journey, in a film that is as poetic as it is fantastic. With reverence to traditions of ancient Mediterranean civilizations, this painterly drama explores the connection between life and death, revealing the final journey as a natural part of life. Winner, Ecumenical Jury Prize for Best Film, 2020 Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival.

***This film is available to viewers across the U.S and U.S. Territories.***
