Manuel Gutierrez Aragon’s 1980 feature, which won second prize at the Chicago International Film Festival the following year, follows a 15-year-old girl (Cristina Marcos) who lives with her father and spends much of her time with a group of elderly Sephardic Jews. Much of the plot revolves around the parallels between a play directed by one of these Jews about a bandit and the real-life underworld of crime.
