Mikel has a lifelong dream: to become a writer. Seeking to inject some extra cash and inspiration into his life, he uproots his family from their sleepy village to the Basque country, where he takes a job protecting politicians from the armed separatist group ETA. But financial security comes at a price: fear, uncertainty and family breakdown.
Drawn in part from his own experience, Mark Bellido’s intense and vivid story finds its perfect counterpart in the bold beauty of Judith Vanistendael’s artwork. Together, they have created a powerful and troubling graphic novel that probes the consequences of personal conviction, and the limits of social responsibility.
