QUIMERA – LAS EDADES BÁRBARAS
In the fifties punishing children, putting them in solitary confinement and abusing them was usual in the San Torbe orphanage. Antón promised himself he would go back as a man, knock down the brick walls that had caused him so much pain, and build a Fantasy; a home for everybody, no matter their condition, sexuality or inclinations.
Forty years later, all those kids, now men and women, are still in contact, but very few want to go back to the place that caused them so much pain. Antón isn’t willing to let them forget the good moments they lived there and the promise they made each other when they were kids, and that’s why he sends each one of them a letter. He wants to reunite them in the Fantasy.
It’s drama with a hint of eroticism that shows us that the love and desire can be born even from a brutality and repression isn’t always able to calm our more free and revolutionary side. Fantasy, The barbaric times introduces us to the different relationships in a group of young kids, in their forbidden loves, in a time that wasn’t theirs and they would never understand. Each one of them keeps a terrible memory but also experiences that go deeper than love and friendship.
Will Antón be able to unite all his friends? Will they keep the promise they made when they were kids? And most of all… What happened there and what changed them for the rest of their lives?
