The music and life journey undergone by the San Sebastian band since their creation in 1940 until their dissolution in 1961 is difficult to gauge with today’s eyes. The Xeys were one of the most famous musical groups in the world and left an indelible impression on many generations. This film is an attempt to recover their memory in the 21st century with the help of their relatives, musical experts and their modern-day counterparts, the Golden Apple Quartet, whose current show is a tribute to them.
