After finding a suitcase hidden in the family home of Francisco Martínez Gascón, the latter’s granddaughter decides to carry out a research project on her grandfather, nicknamed Kautela. We discover a large number of unpublished photographs and documents that prove that Martínez Gascón lived during the Spanish Civil War and photographed the conflict from the nationalist side. Thanks to his snapshots, we witness the birth of modern photojournalism, and also a cruel war that devastated our country. At the same time, the film takes us through a journey into the life of this photographer, so far unknown to the general public.
