With its lyrical and intelligent portrait of a rural childhood spent under the shadow of Franco, SECRETS is being compared to Victor Erice’s seminal SPIRIT OF THE BEEHIVE. In rural ’60s Navarra, inquisitive nine-year-old Javi lives with two aunts and visits his widowed mother in the city. But Javi’s need for answers leads to unwelcome revelations from the family’s past.
