"Set in 1938 during the Spanish Civil War when a group of Republican soldiers sneak into a village in enemy territory to steal a bull with plans of butchering it to feed themselves. ... The group of five would-be thieves dress themselves in uniforms of the Nationalist troops in an attempt to dissimulate their true identity. But instead of a neat getaway with a bull in tow, they are caught up in the "correo" or running of the bull, they get involved in a religious procession, and in the end, watch as the bull breaks out of a flimsy ring in a bullfight and heads for the hills."--Eleanor Mannikka, All Movie Guide

In the pleasant stage of the cruise, Celia and Fernando discover that the same memories, in contact with the natural sensuality of the environment, could transform their existences in an unexpected way
