San Agustín – Marea baja en el Mar del Plástico
SAN AGUSTÍN – Low Tide in the Plastic Sea
In the midst of Europe's biggest fruit and vegetable garden, the so-called „Mar del Plastico“, lies the Andalusian village of San Agustin. There, a mysterious virus threatens the harvest, bacteria attack the plants and the authorities are after the illegal workforce in the greenhouses. Two families, a village tavern and a lot of vegetables. One harvest season in nine chapters.
