The misnamed Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) left a million dead and 500,000 refugees, some
20,000 of whom were taken in by Mexico. Among them were the director’s grandparents, parents, aunt, and many of their friends. This epic tragedy yielded stories of survival and luck as experienced and recalled by the protagonists, here intertwined with the shared history of Spain and Mexico in the twentieth century.
