Sinopsis : Juan de la Cruz (Juan Diego), poeta, reformador de la iglesia y futuro santo, ha sido conducido prisionero hasta el Convento de la Orden Carmelita, en Toledo. Es el año 1577. El poder de la Orden se manifiesta en el Prior y en el Visitador General, Fray Jerónimo Tostado. Ambos sentencian a Fray Juan a la pena de reclusión en una angosta celda, privándole de libertad por tiempo indefinido. Además, Fray Juan es sistemáticamente torturado y privado de alimentos, a excepción de un trozo de pan seco y un poco de agua. La intención de los guardianes es vencer la resistencia del poeta. En su encierro, Fray Juan soporta el castigo diario con una fortaleza que enfurece al Prior. Su candor pronto logra conquistal al carcelero, quen proveé al recluso de pluma y papel con los que escribir sus bellos poemas, que el poeta cree dictados directamente por Dios

7 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in Spanish and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With an exceptional production value, this controversial film shows the brutal reality that several families had to deal with many years ago. Blas Infante, a brave man who tried fighting for other people's rights towards a better life, sacrificed his own freedom and his own life. August 1936, in the darkness, the overcrowding, the terrible days of these fratricidal struggles, the thwarted lives and hopes, in the midst of all these shadows, in conceptual counterpoint, the brilliance of a series of scenes of meticulous expressiveness appears, free from the slavery imposed by time and space and also free from the brutal separation between reality and the imaginary. This is an overall view not just of Blas Infante but also of his time and everything he dedicated his life to!
