Mireia returns to Barcelona after a few years of working in Paris and starts to ask questions about her grandfatherʼs past exile in France. Grandpa told her that when he left he had taken a spoon. One night, there was an explosion. It seems that the spoon in his breast pocket protected him from the shrapnel. She begins to ask the members of her family about this episode, but apparently no one remembers it. For some reason, she cannot abandon the search. She starts a journey that will reveal her generation's lack of awareness about the Spanish Civil War.
