At age 86, Ángel revisits the routes traveled between France and Spain during his long career as a militant anarchist anti-Francoist. As a road-movie, full of emotions, reunion and memories, Angel returns to the stages of his childhood, youth and mature age. The Barcelona of 1937 where, being a child, lost his mother in a bombing, his border step at only 10 years, alone with his brothers 6 and 4 years. Reached with his father in Argelers, boarding school in Dordogne in a childhood colony ...

As a young man he becomes an active anarchist militant who will make raids against the dictatorship, especially for the Aragonese part where he will finally be detained. Tortured, sentenced to death, with commuted punishment, he will spend 16 years in Franco's jails.
