In the early years of the Franco dictatorship, Clara Pueyo Jornet, an active militant in the Communist Party, escaped from Les Corts prison in Barcelona, through the front door. As of that moment, she would disappear without a trace. She had been constantly on the run before then and now also sought to flee from the rigidity of her own party. Her story is also the story of the women of her time and their struggle for freedom in a society that insisted on their repression.
