On a windswept Spanish plain, a woman known only as "The Bride" (a stunning Inma Cuesta, Snow White, Cousinhood) prepares for marriage to a wealthy, handsome young land baron (Asier Etxeandía) as her lifelong love Leonardo, played by Álex Garcia, pines from afar—his quiet yearning threatening to explode the fragile peace in a village once torn apart by a decades-long blood feud. As the wedding day arrives, simmering tensions bubble to the surface and erupt, forcing The Bride to choose between following obligation or challenging fate, her decision leading to an unexpected and devastating climax. Based on Garcia Lorca's timeless tragedy "Bodas de sangre," writer/director Paula Ortiz's follow up to her acclaimed debut feature, From Your Window to Mine, is a visually sumptuous, emotionally rich feast, at once a classically rendered story of the unyielding strength of love and a stirring testament to the power of women to fight to choose their own destinies.
