- "El Sur" ("The South") is the story of Estrella, a little girl from Southern Spain who has been uprooted to the North.

The girl's rose-colored memories are shattered when she learns that her beloved dad once carried an affair with a Southern woman-and that the flames of passion still smolder within him.
