The story of ‘Los hederos de la tierra’ takes us back to Barcelona, in this case to the late medieval of the year 1387, to narrate the adventures and misadventures of Hugo Llor, a 12-year-old boy who spends most of his time on the streets.
His day is also spent in the shipyards and his dream is to become a shipbuilding craftsman, although his fate is uncertain. Hugo’s life is not easy, he is a very lonely boy and his mother does not pay much attention to him, but he has the support and the protection of a respected elder: Arnau Estanyol, protagonist of ‘The Cathedral of the Sea’, which Aitor Luna gave life, Yon González’s brother in real life.
