Summary:
"Barcelona, 1901. The city is going through times of great social upheaval. The stark misery of the most disadvantaged population clearly contrasts with the lavish wealth seen in the wealthiest parts of town. Dalmau Sala, son of an executed anarchist, is a young painter who lives trapped between two worlds. On the one hand, his family and Emma, the woman he loves, are firm defenders of the working class' rights and its struggle for justice; defenders of men and women who set aside all their fears when demanding equal rights for workers. On the other, his job at Don Manuel Bello's ceramic workshop; he is his mentor and a bourgeois conservative with strong Catholic beliefs, this job brings him daily to an environment where wealth and creative innovation prevails. Seduced by the constant tempting offers of a bourgeoisie class willing to buy his works and his conscience, Dalmau will have to find his authentic self, as a man and as an artist, stay away from those nights of excesses, and discover what is truly important in his life"--Provided by publisher.
