The setting takes place somewhere between Barcelona, Spain and Madrid, Spain. The imagery reflects the hot Spanish son and the landscape that is far off and up to interpretation. The train station imagery gives the sense of transience in the relationship of the couple. The heat imagery gives the sense of unresolved conflicts boiling over.
