Synopsis: In the Barcelona of 1980, Oscar Drai dreams awake, dazzled by the modernist palaces close to the boarding school in which he studies. In one of his escapades he meets Marina, an audacious girl who shares with Oscar the adventure of deciphering a painful enigma from the city’s past. A mysterious post-war character undertakes the greatest challenge imaginable, but his ambition drags him through sinister paths whose consequences must still be paid for.
