The Death of Antonio Sanchez Lomas

In a southern Spanish village, a horrific event occurred during the Franco era. This event remains a taboo subject no one talks about. Beneath the apparent village harmony, there is an undercurrent of lethargic pain, personal drama, betrayal and hidden political conflicts. These all stem from the same cruelties carried out by the Guardia Civil. Filmmakers Ramon and Salvador Gieling confront the inhabitants with these hidden secrets. Only the ones who confront the bloody past can live in peace with the future.
