Synopsis:
The painful past of Franco’s Spain, not mentioned until now, is here revisited. The law of historical memory was passed in December 2007 in spite of being controversial. The Spanish government intends to lift the veil off that era at last, and thereby do justice to the dictatorship’s thousands of victims. José-Luis Peñafuerte takes us on a real journey in search of repressed memory in order to blow away the dust of oblivion. He skillfully gathers together the pieces of a puzzle scattered between common graves, concentration camps and prisons.
