LA SPAGNOLA is a comical story of begrudged love and revenge set in a dusty hot Australian industrial town. It is 1960 and a small migrant community lives on the edge of the desolate interior struggling to forge a life in this strange, inhospitable land.
A dust storm mysteriously arrives as Lola (Lola Marceli) a fiery Spanish woman, throws herself on the ground screaming. Her husband Ricardo (Simon Palomares) calmly steps over her, and with the family savings, heads for freedom with his Australian mistress. Lola and her teenage daughter Lucia (Alice Ansara) watch in disbelief as he disappears into the swirling dust, never to return.
With the family savings, Ricardo buys a new car and enjoys the good life with his mistress, while Lola and Lucia go hungry. Desperate and destitute in a country she doesn’t like or understand, Lola’s quest for revenge and justice begins.
