The brutal Franco dictatorship continues to haunt Spain—literally, as some 120,000 skeletons of the Fascist leader's enemies were buried in unmarked graves all over the country. If one man has come to symbolize all of these desaparecidos, it's legendary poet and playwright Federico Garcia-Lorca, whom this film calls "the first LGBT victim of the Franco regime." Director Andrea Weiss examines the men and women (including the writer's niece, Laura) who recall Spain's homophobic past and seek to exhume it by finding these remains.
