After leaving her rural Spanish village in the 1930s, 21-year-old Lucía (Lucía Jiménez) returns to a country under dictatorial rule in 1944, following the rise to power of General Franco. While there, she gets to know the local blacksmith, Manuel (Juan Diego Botto), who is part of the local Maquis resistance group that refuses to acknowledge Franco’s new government. Moved by his courage, Lucía becomes involved in the uprising, in spite of the danger that surrounds such a stand against Franco’s regime.
