Filmed in the village of Figueiras, at the foot of the Compostela Monte Pedroso, this disturbing short film places us in an imaginary and subdued town, which has been obedient since ancient times to rites and superstitions, among which is to hand over newborns to the goddess of the town. The story of a rebel father, who manages to save his son, and his subsequent sacrifice, make up the storyline of the film.

O corpiño brings us closer to the famous pilgrimage that is celebrated on St. John's Day in the parish of Santa María de Losón, on a hill located in the valley of the Deza River. The film is divided into two parts: the first part is accompanied by a voiceover in which hundreds of people approach the sanctuary; and the second part, the procession itself, in which the virgin leaves the chapel and walks through the atrium, having to be touched with a garment of that person who wants to be cured of bad luck.

Filming of the demolition of the modernist building located in the Plaza de Galicia in Santiago de Compostela, which was built in 1926 by Coruña architect Rafael González Villar and whose demolition caused fierce controversy in 1974, when the city council expropriated the building for its demolition. The Official College of Architects of Galicia (COAG) asked that it be declared a Historic Artistic Monument but despite the protests the building is demolished in 1975 for the construction of an underground car park.
