synopsis

A documentary filmmaker reviews the life of Josep del Amo, a cabinetmaker who took part in the Spanish Civil War, fighting for the side of the anarchists. Once the war was over, del Amo was unable flee into exile.

This film describes the vicissitudes of his survival under the Franco regime, through his passion for the theatre, poetry and music. This filmmaker is the protagonist's grandson. When researching his grandfather's life, he rediscovered his own past and decided to lend a voice to those who suffered the most under the Franco dictatorship: Spain's domestic exiles.
