Miguel sets out on a journey that he has been anticipating for sixty years, from Valencia to a small town in the south of France called Argelès-sur-Mer, the last stop for thousands of refugees not so long ago. Journeying in his old car through an unknown present and a past put aside, he searches for a personal as well as historical reconciliation.
