In 1919, demobbed, Gerald Brenan rents a house for a year in Yegen, a village in Alpujarra. He has little but a love of reading and writing. He’s soon the center of attention from his maid, María, who has a marriageable daughter, Ángeles; from Paco, a man who decides to guide Gerald in the ways of the village and of love; from the town’s priest, his landlady, her friend who loves St. Teresa, and, from Juliana, a teen beauty who’s the daughter of a witch. Gerald must sort out his feelings and face down the machinations of the town’s women, who map a future he doesn’t want. What he wants is romance. How far from his class and country can he venture, and for how long?

Fernando Colomo was unable to shoot ‘Al sur de Granada’ in Yegen, where Gerald Brenan arrived in the Twenties, because in 2002 it no longer looked like the one the British writer knew, so he had to film in several locations in the municipality of La Tahá, such as Fondales, where the only house Brenan bought is located and where his secretary and heiress lives.
