A powerful story of dysfunctional love

Tomas is a wealthy farmer, rough and taciturn, as rooted in the land as the eucalyptus trees he grows under the Galician sun. When he’s diagnosed with lung cancer, he tells no-one. Suiza is a damaged young woman, strikingly beautiful, barely literate, a run-away.

Her only dream, to see the sea. The relationship that ensues is as passionate and tender as it is troubling and nuanced. How transformative can love really be? As happiness and the promise of healing beckon, the darkness that has been spreading underneath all along will reveal itself, bringing the narrative to a heart-stopping, heart-wrenching denouement.
