Every year, at the beginning of summer, a local community living on the edge of a protected wetland in the South of Spain prepare for a four-day journey on horseback gathering the remaining horses living in the wild. Alejandro stems from these villages and will join the elders on this sacred journey. As they head out into the marshland he prays to the Virgen for protection as life in and around the marshes is threatened by the drought and forest fires that rage stronger every year.
