Iciar Bollain teamed up with husband Paul Laverty, the Ken Loach scriptwriter, for the feelgood tale of 20-year-old Alma, who works on her family’s olive farm in Castellon.

When her grandfather dies after refusing to eat, Alma heads to Germany in a lorry to retrieve the family’s prized 2,000-year-old olive trees which were sold against her grandfather’s wishes.

The film received its world premiere at the Miami International Film Festival in March.

Bollain’s 2003 film Te Doy Mis Ojos won seven Goyas.
