After lead­ing a stu­dent life in Pon­fer­ra­da, the 24-year-old Edil­ber­to Rodríguez decides to return to the moun­tains and ded­i­cate him­self to herd­ing a herd of goats. With the memory of his grand­par­ents very present, “the last of Arga­neo” tells the story of a young shep­herd proud of the her­itage of his ances­tors, and who claims the tra­di­tions of unin­hab­it­ed places and the mem­o­ries of a way of life on the brink of extinc­tion.
