Description:
Based on real events, the film focuses on two village men convicted of a crime they did not commit. As the film’s depiction of torture referenced the brutality of Franco’s police, the premiere was blocked, and the director prosecuted for slandering the Civil Guard. When finally released, years after censorship was abolished, it became the highest grossing film in Spanish box-office history.

Spain, 1913. José María, a shepherd from the village of Osa de la Vega, disappears mysteriously. Everyone believes he has been murdered by his two companions, Gregorio and León. Although they declare themselves to be innocent, they end up confessing to the crime under torture and are condemned to 18 years in prison. More than a decade later, Jose María, the man they are supposed to have killed, turns up alive.
