The last times of the second Republic were hard, very hard. And, suddenly, the greatest terror, the beginning of the Civil War, stands. Higinio (De la Torre) and Rosa (Cuesta) have been married for a few months. He, from the left, to whom a neighbor never forgave the death of a brother, the burning of churches, fears a sneak, for his life, hence he decides to transform himself into a "mole", into one more of the contest and live in just a few meters, deep down, under the ground. Thirty years without leaving the darkness; That is why (in significant and superb moments), when his wife speaks to him and he answers hidden, it seems that he speaks with a ghost. It is. While the furious sex scenes of the couple manage to return "the body", physicality. The protagonist of the film made by Aitor Arregi, Jon Garaño and José Mari Goenaga («Loreak», 2014, and «Handia», 2017; some filmmakers with a poetic, but also terrifying and obscure vision of reality, their films seem tales Andersen's uncensored) possibly represents that Spain that lost the battle, although for others it is only a coward. And before Miguel de Molina sounded and today, Julio Iglesias. While Higinio digs up the remains of a corpse on which he has slept five years. Spooky. Spain has not changed so much.
