Set in the 80s, the most turbulent years for the Basque Country, a northern region in Spain sunk at the time in a turmoil of political violence and terrorism, ONCE UPON A TIME IN EUSKADI is a coming-of-age where a group of 12-year-old friends will have to learn to deal with loss and adversity thanks to the power of friendship. A bittersweet story of innocence lost and hope produced by La Canica Films (The Fury of a Patient Man) that features a fresh cast of up-and-coming actors like Arón Piper (Elite), Luis Callejo (Below Zero) and Asier Flores (Pain & Glory).
Euskadi 1985. It's summer time, the holidays are finally here. Marcos and his 3 friends, José Antonio, Paquito and Toni, anxiously await a promising summer break from the fresh view of a 12-year-old, who doesn't care about when, how and when. They will while away the hours in the maze life has prepared for them, in an old, turbulent and trembling Euskadi. A maze of painted walls, where rubber balls and dreams bounce together; all covered by a sky tainted in the grey of prefabricated concrete, where life and death no longer keep formal relationships.
