'Death In Spring' is a dark and dream-like tale of a young boy's coming of age in a remote town in the Catalan mountains; a town where time is eternal, where cruel customs are blindly followed, and attempts at rebellion swiftly crushed. When his father dies, he must follow the town's bizarre rituals in a journey towards adulthood, his stepmother his only ally, until he seeks freedom of his own.
