    • Synopsis
    • Station of the forgotten chronicles the relationship between an old sailor (Domingo) stranded away from sea and a teenager who finds difficult to fit in society. Their paths will cross, for various reasons, at the old people’s home where the old man now lives, and where the boy is serving a community service sentence.
      They find each other at a key point in their respective lives: the teenager is negotiating the tricky path from adolescence to maturity, and the old man, the equally tricky one leading from old age to death. In spite of their age difference, they will become the closest of travel companions.
      With the help of the young man and his granddaughter, the sailor will break free from the old age home in order to see the sea one last time.
      In this story, the main characters are forced to confront facts that will change their lives forever.
      Touching and compelling, Station of the forgotten encourages viewers to think about our elders, whose only fate seems to be to be forgotten.
      And once they’re gone, it’s sometimes too late to get them back. At the end of the journey, the old sailor will be reunited with his beloved wife, the teenager will finally find his place in society, and the sailor’s granddaughter will find herself again.
      Station of the forgotten is a journey to the lighthouse at the edge of the world (Creus cape) and a love story full of warmth and emotion.
