During Spain’s turbulent 1960s, in a mansion in the foothills of the Pyrenees, Joana idles her days away, banished by her powerful husband and alienated from her family.
Carla hates everything her parents stand for. She has embraced the student movement against Franco’s regime, but she has been watched and there are consequences. When her beloved fiancé is arrested, Carla is left terrified and powerless to help either Luc or herself.
Maria shelters her rebellious granddaughter, but is left wondering again what it was that happened thirty years before to cause Joana to marry into the Franco regime and abandon her family.
The brutal legacy of the Spanish Civil War lingers on for these women. Can the arrival of an unknown cousin help them unite to face the enemy together, despite their ghosts and regrets, one autumn in Catalonia?
