In the year 2000, Maixabel‘s husband, the Basque politician Juan María Jaúregui, was killed by ETA. 11 years later, she receives an incredible request via the restorative justice Nanclares Way initiative: to meet with Ibon, one of the men who killed Juan. Ibon’s bid to engage in dialogue is extremely controversial amongst those on both sides; but despite her reservations and her immense pain, Maixabel agrees to meet because, in her words, ‘everyone deserves a second chance’. Based on real events, with an all-star cast and crew, the film boasts a soundtrack by top Spanish composer Alberto Iglesias. A powerful tale of repentance and reconciliation, with a hopeful message that national and personal trauma can heal.
