    • Synopsis
    • Miguel starts a journey, delayed sixty years, from Madrid to a small town in the South of France, called Argelès-sur-mer, where thousands of refugees last stopped not so long ago.
      Getting through an unknown present and a forgotten past in his old car, he seeks sort of a personal, but certainly too historical, reconciliation.
