Among the film locations, O Castro (Sada), Pontesampaio (Pontevedra), Noalla, Illa Lobeira, Castro de Rei, Vilaboa and Compostela are included. In addtion to Ledo’s direction and script, Nación will have Alberte Branco as photography director and Mercedes Peón music in the soundtrack. The original idea of the film comes from the year 2015 and has been awarded the Luísa Villalta prize of the Deputación da Coruña to”ideas and projects for equality”, and is also one of the projects proyectos chosen by Agadic for its line of grants to audiovisual production.

Nación is filming the lives as an index, a vestige, a signal of a time that has disappeared and returns to emerge in the seek of that place ‘onde pousar a cabeça'”, concludes the presentation text of the film.
