February, 1939. Spanish republicans are fleeing Franco’s dictatorship to France. The French government built concentration camps, confining the refugees. They live in terrible conditions: they barely have access to hygiene, water and food. In one of these camps, separated by barbed wire, two men will become friends. One of them is a guard; the other is Josep Bartoli (Barcelona, 1910 – New York City, 1995), an illustrator who fights against Franco’s totalitarian regime.
