    • Synopsis
    • Gartxot is the story of a minstrel from the Pyrenees who is sent to exile by the new Abbot of Roncevallis to capture his only son, Mikelot and convert him into a singing monk. The child manages to escape and sings once again beside his father having him promise to never let them lock him up in the monastery again. Their songs become a symbol of the struggle against oppression. Time and time again with the help of folk, they manage to shake the authorities off. In the end, as authorities manage to surround them, Gartxot remembers his promise to his son leading to a tragedy that will always be remembered.
