Summary Madrid, 1935. Con el entusiasmo de llevar la cultura a los pueblos más apartados, tres jóvenes maestros, un hombre y dos mujeres, se inscriben en las Misiones Pedagógicas. Salen en un camión cargado de libros dispuestos a montar en una aldea de la sierra de la Culebra una biblioteca escolar. En el camino de este grupo se cruzará un adolescente que viaja solitario en busca del único familiar que le queda. A lo largo de su peregrinaje, el chico irá encontrándose con ermitaños, pistoleros, aparecidos del más allá, compañías de variedades con mentalistas y pedómanos, lingüistas, y estudiantes. El idealismo de los maestros se dará de bruces con una tierra brutal, y la violencia terminará por estallar con la aparación fatal de personajes inesperados
In 1935 in Madrid, three young teachers, a man and two women, enlist in the Teaching Missions. They are enthusiastic about taking learning and culture to the most isolated towns. They leave in a truck filled with books which are available for setting up a school library in a village in the mountains of Culebra. On the way to the village the teachers cross paths with a teenager who is traveling alone in search of his last remaining relative. During his journey the youth meets up with hermits, gunslingers, apparitions from beyond, variety show performers, linguists and students. The idealism of the teachers falls flat in this brutal land, and violence erupts with the fatal appearance of unexpected characters
