The film is based on the historical character of Francisco Boix (Mario Casas) who was a photographer and communist militant during the Civil War in Spain. After being exiled he became an inmate of the Mauthausen concentration camp, where he began working at the photo lab. Once he was there he dedicated himself to photograph everything that was happening with the people who lived with him at the camp, but he had to hide from the Germans to protect his life. With the help of a group of Spanish prisoners, he prepared the exit of some of his photographic negatives from the field to show the cruelty that was used with the inmates inside those walls. The photographs of Boix were decisive to obtain a sentence during the Nuremberg trials.
