Border towns always have a sort of irremovable identifying category that turns them into pure essence and, in time, fixes them in a state of eternal foreignness. Eloy Enciso’s characters work almost as an exact archetype of this condition: they are the population of Couto Mixto, a legendary place in the border between Galicia and Portugal with a population of two hundred and twenty seven square kilometers.
