February 1939, the Spanish republicans are fleeing Franco’s dictatorship to France. The French government has built a concentration camp, confining the refugees to a place where they barely have access to water, food, and basic hygiene tools. This moving animated film tells the saga of an unlikely friendship between a fictional French gendarme, and masterly draftsman Josep Bartoli, a Spanish Republican fighter, confined in one of these French concentration camps.
