Director

Pilar Miró

The film is a harsh depiction of real events that took place in 1913, in the province of Cuenca, when two men were condemned for a crime they did not commit. 
 

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. Some time later, Jose María, the man they are supposed to have killed, turns up alive.
