Short film based on real events

The filming took place between 12 and 16 June in the old Model prison in Barcelona. The short film was directed by Ales Payá and Gorka Lasaosa. Pau Poch, Biel Montoro, Alex Moreu, Albert Adrià, and Gorka Lasaosa, among others, start in the short film. It is produced by Empatik Films and Intemperie Producciones. The short film is a prison drama set in the 70s based on real events.

Miguel (Pau Poch) is a common prisoner in the Carabanchel prison in 1975. After the death of the dictator, prison doors were opened to let political prisoners out, but the common prisoners remained in pitiful conditions. In search of freedom and escape from alienation from the prison environment, Miguel motivated the first action that took place in Spanish prisons to call for the mobilization of common prisoners. It was the seed of the organization of the Coordinator of Prisoners in Struggle (COPEL).
