A fragile novel about the meeting of a Spanish civil war veteran, František, and Spanish student, Carmen, who is searching for stories about the lives of old, forgotten warriors. In different ways they are both looking for the answer to the same question: what makes a man go to fight in foreign lands? Ideals? The desire for adventure? Love?

Popular author Markéta Pilátová, known for her novels set in Latin America, based this new book on real life stories of Czech volunteers in the International Brigades.
