An multinational production concerning the aftermath of the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) that has risen to cult popularity. Fando is a young boy whose fascist-sympathizing mother turned his father into the authorities as a suspected communist. He struggles with his father's arrest, and in a shocking moment discovers a letter in which his mother admits to betraying his father. His mother convinces him that his father committed suicide in prison, but Fando doubts this and attempts to discover his father's true fate. The film is noted for its graphic depictions of violence.
