Paris, 1930. The film THE GOLDEN AGE has caused a scandal and Luis Buñuel, who appeared to be destined for surrealism stardom, is left with nothing. In this difficult situation, he cannot even tackle his next project, a documentary about one of the poorest Spanish regions, Las Hurdes. However, his friend, sculptor Ramón Acín, buys a lottery ticket with the promise that, if he wins, he will pay for the film. Incredibly, luck is on their side. The harshness of Las Hurdes and the extreme misery of its people affect Buñuel deeply. Reality, dreams, memories of his childhood and Salvador Dalí, all begin to mix up in his mind in this creative animation movie.
