Stay With Us Lord, Because Dusk is Coming

Original title: Quédate con nosotros, señor, porque atardece

In a small Trappist Monastery located in the village of La Gorgoracha, Granada, the body of Father Abel, one of the monks, is found hanging from the ceiling. Although it was a suicide, the Prior decides to declare it an accidental death. The brutal effect of the event on each of the five members of the community will be aggravated by the morbid determination of a journalist to uncover the true nature of the death and publish the Friar’s diaries, in which he explains his reasons for taking his life. In spite of the Prior’s cover-up and manipulative attempts to preserve the life of silence, prayer and faith in the community, the upheaval will invade the spirits of the other monks, setting in motion a rupture that will change their lives.
