Surtitled version

Spain, 1936. Angel, Antonio and Dolores leave their village for Barcelona with the hope of a better world. Faced with the excitement of that summer, and the beginning of the civil war, their paths will take them farther than they could have imagined. Two brothers tell us the story of their grandfather, Angel, his brothers and his sister, in Spain at war, from Franco's coup d'état to their exile to France. Points of view, ideologies and memories are mixed in the black coffee of family memories. Coffee, we like it with or without sugar, Brothers is the bitter story of those who keep the taste of youth and utopias.
