At seventy years old, Nando is seriously ill. It is a critical moment in his life that serves as a catalyst for a biographical story that alternates between an account of the present and memories of the past. The changing portrait of the protagonist who unflinchingly remembers years of disguises, searches and explorations, is outlined through a discontinuous narrative that goes from his resumed political activity following the 15-M movement to his activism during the anti-Franco student revolts and, after his exile to France, from his period of heroin addiction to his current commitment to the practice of Buddhist meditation as a tool for personal and social transformation.
