What happens when everything that once was your life, everyone around you, the streets, names, and families only survive in your memories? Emilio, the last villager of a small town, lives unconnected to the world that surrounds him, farming his lands and following the same routine since decades ago. After an unexpected discovery, the main character faces reality: the houses are mysteriously disappearing and he is the only witness.

In ‘Barbecho’, you will travel through the last decades of rural Spain, full of names, traditions, and people already forgotten. Together with Emilio, the reader will deal with mourning this ancient Spain that, due to its incompatibility with the modern world, has been gradually emptied.
