Synopsis

During the year 1936 as civil war is beginning to brew in Spain, teenagers Ricardo Fernandez and Jorge Aquirre have come to idolize the poet Federico Garcia Lorca. They attend the premiere of his play "Yerma" and actually go back stage to meet the man. Soon after their meeting, Lorca is arrested by the fascists and subsequently disappears. Fifteen years after the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War, Ricardo returns to his native Granada as an established journalist to ponder what really happened to the famed, murdered Spanish poet. Knowing that he will never be able to find peace until he finds Lorca's killer, Ricardo returns to Franco's Spain, a country still rife with enemies of the poet and dangers waiting for one who would discover the murderer.
