A journalist and a photographer are covering a crime at the border. There is nothing to add to the photos. The journalist tries to articulate the story. Suso, a mechanic, seeks to collude with his assistant Lolo, in order to collect an outstanding bill from Arístides, a smuggler, who keeps the seamstress Celia under his power in exchange for turning a blind eye to her family during the years of the Repression, in “los tiempos de las cunetas“. Celia prepares the spider’s web. When night falls, shadows entangle the threads from which this crime of the border hang.
