The true story of a group of young women, some of them minors who converge in the galleries of a detention center under the totalitarian regime newly installed by General Francisco Franco and the Nationalist party at the end of the Spanish Civil War. Coming from different backgrounds and accused of crimes against the regime, the women share their last days of life with hope and conviction for their ideals before facing a summary trial, even when General Franco has promised that “only those with blood on their hands” will be prosecuted.

 

La historia verídica de un grupo de jóvenes mujeres, algunas de ellas menores de edad, que se encuentran en los galerones de un centro de detención del recién instaurado régimen totalitario del general Francisco Franco, justo al final de la guerra civil española. Todas provienen de pasados distintos, y acusadas de perpetuar crímenes en contra del régimen, las mujeres comparten sus últimos días de vida con esperanza y convicción sobre sus ideales, antes de enfrentarse a un juicio sumario a pesar de que el General Franco prometió que los únicos perseguidos serîan aquellos “que tengan sangre en sus manos”.
