Unable to get over his wife’s goodbye, Breton resorts to the most atrocious violence: against his children. With the most refined sadism: that they would never appear, so that she and he would be united forever in the search. And with the most Dantesque of methods: lulling them to sleep and burning them in a gigantic bonfire until their bodies were blown away by the wind. The police task made a tremendous mistake, but a year later he could be charged. And condemned.

The veteran filmmaker from Córdoba, José Ángel Bohollo (Kill me a lot, And you didn’t mourn for me. El Cordobés, Spanish western, Morente, intimate universe) is placed as director and co-writer at the head of the team that, in this three-episode documentary miniseries, puts the focus on the figure of José Bretón: the sad protagonist of the so-called Ruth and José case, which shook the whole country in those days at the end of 2011.
