“The Desired” is about a number of events happening in a small village isolated between mountains after a war that devastated the country. In this situation, the Desired appear, a sort of pseudoreligious, paramilitary sect with a strict and authoritarian hierarchy. Through lies and deceits they succeeded in manipulating, subjugating and controlling village inhabitants. They take advantage of population's weakness and despair on account of all the pain they suffered during the war.
