With a complex protagonist who is, at times, a challenge for the spectator as regards generating empathy, Las altas presiones combines in one sober story several themes which touch not only on things generational or existential, but also on the contemporary, regional and political. After living away from his native city for a long time due to work reasons, Miguel returns to Pontevedra to search for locations for a film. Looking at his life with a lack of interest that goes a step beyond melancholy or nihilism, he finds it hard to get involved in what is happening, or to establish relationships with those around him. Nevertheless, this journey through the industrial ruins of the ria and through what is left of old friendships will put him in touch with himself again, and this may be the wake-up call that he needs.
