In a remote Castilian village in 1940, a bright eight-year-old with a wonderfully fertile imagination struggles in the oppressively hive-like and spiritually empty home her bee-keeping father heads. When she befriends a wartime fugitive, she pictures him as a reincarnation of Boris Karloff's outcast monster in "Frankenstein" (USA/1931)--a film that profoundly affected her when it was projected in the town hall.
