Following the Civil War, Manuel Cortés, former mayor of Mijas in Malaga province, had no opportunity to flee Spain. Making his long and perilous way home, he finally got there in the darkness of the night without having been caught. His wife, Juliana, told him about the shootings taking place in the village. They decided to make a small hole in the wall as a hideaway. Manuel Cortés never even imagined that that little space behind the wall would become his own particular prison for 30 years.

This is the story of the so-called "post-war moles" who had to sacrifice an entire life to escape repression. According to the historians, the Spanish Civil War ended in 1939. However, for the war "moles", it ended much later, thirty years on, in 1969, when a document published in the Official State Gazette "pardoned" their alleged "crimes".

Talk: Manuel H. Martín (director), Jorge Laplace (screenwriter)
