In an isolated pocket of Galicia in the mid-Forties, the peaceful lives of the Crebinsky brothers are destroyed when torrential rains flood their village and wash them and their beloved cow Muchka miles away. Stranded by an old lighthouse, they try to make do—until one day Muchka disappears. Their search for her takes them back towards their old village—and to a world being torn apart by forces they can’t understand. A beautiful, fable-like film with touches of magic realism and slapstick silent comedy, Crebinsky creates the sense of a distinctive if long-lost world.
