Synopsis

As the northern front is about to be overpowered by Franco’s troops during the Civil War, one hundred and twenty-two children leave behind the Republic’s defeat and hunger and are taken to Denmark – here is the account of the hardships of this boat journey, with a stop in France, as told by its protagonists. When they reach Copenhagen they are warmly received, and the stay lasts a whole year. Then, it is time to return to Franco’s Spain, now that the war is over. The complete footage of this adventure was preserved at the Worker’s Museum in Denmark. Some of its protagonists meet in 2008 under the imposing statue crowning Santa Catalina’s hill in Gijón
