He comes to visit Sheriff Jake. Twenty-five years earlier, both the sheriff and Silva, the rancher who rides out to meet him, worked together as hired gunmen. Silva visits him with the excuse of reuniting with his friend from his youth, and they do indeed celebrate their meeting, but the next morning Sheriff Jake tells him that the reason for his trip is not to go down the memory lane of their old friendship.... This special one night only event consists of not only the short film, but also a pre-recorded Q&A with Pedro Almódovar.“It may be a short film, but full character arcs and swaggering drama is still packed in by Almodóvar and his team.” metro.co.uk Pedro Almodóvar Season
