When entertainer Jorge del Pino loses his wife and son in the last days of the Spanish Civil War, there's not much left to fear. At war's end, jobs are scarce and hunger plentiful. The outspoken Jorge, his vaudeville partner Enrique and their band of traveling artists oppose the brutal repression of the Franco regime. Miguel, a precocious child, joins the troupe, challenging the embittered Jorge to once again embrace life. The story meanders from its dreamy opening through the darkest post war days, ultimately spanning the centuries.
