Directed by Alessandro Pugno

An untold journey inside the Valles de los Caidos (Valley of the Fallen) Monastery: the daily life of the benedectine monks and the education of Chorus children, based on a mix of Catholic integralism and traditionalism. The monumental complex founded by dictator Francisco Franco between 1939 and 1950, whose rests are held in the Basilica, is a symbol of the actual political mission of the Catholic Church which is getting a new boost through all Europe.
