    • Synopsis
    • Miguel makes the journey that his grandfather can’t make because he’s locked up by his own family. The mission is very simple, go to a funeral and leave an army jacket on the grave of an old man, a friend of his grandfather. Miguel, accompanied by Lola and Guillermo, leaves that island inside the city of Valencia that is the Nazaret neighborhood. He wanders the outskirts of Valencia, looking for a cemetery and faces a deserted city, at least for one day.
      The journey turns step by step into a risky way full of uncertainties, and much longer than their child mind could foresee.
      Miguel, Lola and Guillermo will have to face constantly a feeling of abandon and loneliness they manage to overcome thanks to their own determination, trusting one in others. Without money, and without too much help from the adults they will find in the way, these three kids try to close a promise they make theirs by obstinacy.
