A dark fable set five years after the end of the Spanish Civil War. Eleven-year-old Ophelia, faces the horrors of fascism when she and her pregnant mother uproot in the field, where her new stepfather, a sadistic captain in general Franco's army, hunts the Republican guerrillas who refuse to give up the Luc Has. The violent reality in which he lives merges perfectly with a fantastic inner world when Ophelia meets a Faun in a decadent maze, and is on a strange mythical journey that is both terrifying and beautiful.
