In february 1939 spanish republicans are fleeing Franco’s dictatorship to France. The French government built a concentration camp, confining the refugees, where they barely have access to hygiene, water and food. In one of these camps, separated by barbed wire, two men will become friends. One is a guard, the other is Josep Bartoli (1910-1995), an illustrator who fights against Franco’s regime.
