An old lady, Misia, tells how the 300 ravens of Xallas are the warrior-poets of the last king of Galicia. A priest, Don Xil, explains to a peasant girl, Rosa, that the beautifully carved women in the local church are not saints, but representations of the seven deadly sins.

Manuel Rivass story emerges like spirals of smoke, in a series of memorably poetic images. His characters have their roots deep in the traditions, legends, language and history of Galicia, Spains most north-westerly province. With tremendous power of vision Rivas displays his strong sense of cultural identity through tales narrated with great tenderness and humour.
