A train passes through the town of Alhandra, between the hills and the river. Óscar, who has spent twenty-five of his forty-ei- ght years working at the same factory, is waiting to hear the court’s verdict on his employer’s insol- vency claim. With production at a standstill and salaries overdue, Óscar and his co-workers conti- nue to show up everyday for work, hoping to keep their jobs. But when the closing of the factory is confirmed, Óscar makes peace with the world again when he’s hired by the factory next door.
