“EBRO, FROM THE CRADLE TO THE BATTLE tells the story of five young men called to participate in the key battle of the Spanish Civil War.

The story begins in April 1938 when the President of the Republic, Manuel Azaña, ordered the mobilization of thousands of boys of 17 and 18 years of age to join the fight against Franco’s troops in the key battle of the Civil War. These young people were referred to as “Bottle Generation” referring to the young age of the combatants.

Among the boys sent to the Battle of the Ebro is Pere Puig, who had to leave his shepperd’s life; Fermin Quintana, who has been enlisted to find his missing brother; Valentí Godall, anti-.fascist; and Jaume Comelles, a seminarian who lives scared of colleagues like Martin Claret, anticlerical, who look at him with as much hate as enemies. “
