In the harsh years of post-war rural Catalonia, Andreu, a youngster relegated to the losers' side, comes across the bodies of a man and his son in the woods. When the authorities want to pin the blame on his father, the boy decides to try and help him, setting out to discover who killed them. The experience teaches Andreu moral awareness in a world of adults nourished by lies. To survive, he betrays his own roots, eventually finding the monster living deep inside himself.
