XVI Century. The Augustinian monk Antoni de Román dies in suspicious circumstances after winning a professorship at the University of Salamanca. Today, 500 years later, the writer and historian Lara Cabanes is in charge of investigating that death. The investigation will unexpectedly turn ever more complex and dangerous, shedding light into a time marked by the fight of the Inquisition against new ideas taking hold throughout Europe. Unrelented ambition and the struggle for power are not just things of the past, and through her investigation Lara will come across hurtful discoveries and treason. The steps of the Augustinian professor lead to today, and Lara will discover that so many centuries later, truth still has terrible enemies.
One of the screenwriters of the film, Clara Pérez Escrivá, received a Goya award for the Best adapted screenplay with his team in 2001.
