It is the beginning of the 20th century, and fear is spreading through Barcelona, with terrifying rumours of a carriage allegedly responsible for the recent mysterious disappearances of several children. For the journalist Comas, this is a sensitive subject for personal reasons, but when he returns to work after a year away, he is forced to confront it head on. He is the one who will have the chance to discover what is really going on in Barcelona... Shot predominantly in black and white, this highly stylized film is inspired by actual events.
