Somewhere in this vast ocean of darkness called the cosmos an island exists
with valleys of red earth. Angel lands with the mission to fumigate the
vineyards, in order to stop the cochenille infestation which is giving the
wine a strange, earthy taste. Under electric skies and in touch with the
common people, Angel finds a way of resolving his split personality disorder
with two women: Angela, a married and timid blond; and Marl, a 19 year-old
slightly perverted and insolent red-head. This inner conflict, complex and
secret, is accompanied by another physical struggle:
Patricio, Angela's husband, is also Marl's lover. Thus, Angel is able to
transform his inner conflict into a question of life or death, earth or
cosmos, wisdom or folly, and lust or love.
"'Tierra' is an island, a lone man, a faraway imaginary place separating life
and death, the known from the unknown. A story of simulated choice and
balance owing the existential anxiety of a fragile and sensitive being who
feels inferior, scorned, due to the incalculable laws of the governing
universe. It is also a physical place, a centre where a love story takes
place with two women and two ways of solving the essential contradictions
that stem from the excited Imagination of the protagonist. One choice remains
- death is the void; so there is no time to waste thinking about it. The
universe is too violent and big to our liking and Man, this species that
lives above our line of sight, illuminates everything." - Julio Medem
