In the summer of 1961, a group of young Italians set out on a secret trip through Spain. Their goal was to document and record the popular resistance songs following the Franco regime. After 6,000 km on the road, they return to Turin with 9,000 feet of recording tape. A year later, they publish the book entitled Canti della nuova resistenza spagnola. The Francoist government is furious. They seize the publication and the members of the group are taken to court in Turin, accused of obscenity and vilifying a foreign head of state.

Sixty years later, we recover the unpublished recordings and reconstruct their journey, guided by Emilio Jona, the last living member of the group.
