A young filmmaker finds a notebook with the memories of his great-grandfather during the Civil War in Soria. He finds out that he was persecuted and taken prisoner for years and tries to reconstruct the story by going in search of these locations to film them. He discovers that his family used to make a living at the time by fishing for crabs, the reason they received the nickname that has been passed down for generations.

The history of these animals becomes a metaphor for reality when an invasive species causes the extinction of the native crabs. The crabs that had saved his family in the worst moments suffered a similar situation to theirs.
