THE MASTER AND THE SEA
EU MANZANARES / CIA MAR VIVIR
Júlia, a girl from Barcelona, spends the last summer in her grandparents' village house, in Burgos. At the same time, a mass grave from the Civil War is being exhumed very close to there. One night he discovers that his grandfather, with senile dementia, hides an old metal box with memories from his childhood in the yard. The contents of the box and the pit contain a common story that Julia is determined to investigate. But the fugitive memory of his grandfather and the taboo will be strong obstacles in his search. "The master and the sea" is a fiction based on the true story of Antoni Benaiges, a Catalan master murdered in July 1936 in the area of La Pedraja, in Burgos.
