Dans l’ombre du viaduc

Spain, 1957.
Arnaud Madrier is staying in Teruel, a small village in Spain. His father, who had been a member of the International Brigades, disappeared in this very place, during the Civil war twenty years ago.
The young French engineer wants to understand what went down but his presence quickly turns out to be a bother for the locals, rekindling the not so distant memories of past tragedies.
Just by being there, Arnaud gradually opens up Pandora’s box and painful secrets are exposed. Twenty years after, friendship, hatred, love and vengeance are still raw, ready to rage, in the shadow of the legendary Teruel Lovers.
