Spain, Costa del Sol, 1974. In the dying days of the Franco dictatorship, the London schoolteacher Robert Winter brings a class of slum school kids to Andalusia to practice their Spanish - or at least that's what he was told to do. He's responsible for 20 teenage timebombs, in a country where the prime minister has just been assassinated and where he himself has a deadly secret.
But someone knows his secret . . . is it the beautiful, enigmatic Juanita, or is it the aging bullfighter Jésus who keeps following the group around? And what is it about his teennage school group, who don't only have the power to decide his happiness but also who lives and who dies?
