The town 65-year-old Domingo lives in is being threatened by thugs hired by a developer to expel its inhabitants and pave the way for the construction of a mega highway. But his land hides a secret—the ghost of his deceased wife who visits him within the mist. Domingo is sure he will never give up his land, even if that means resorting to violence.
