At the outset of the Spanish Civil War in 1936, Ferran Calvet, a young Catalan scientist, is forced to relinquish his professorship at the University of Santiago to go into exile. Incomprehensibly, two years later, in the heart of the war, he decides to return to Galicia with his family to take up the post of scientific director at Zeltia, a newly created pharmaceutical company. Calvet's return to Spain will mean not only his incarceration by the regime but also the terrible frustration of being unable to return to lecturing. But once he gets down to work at Zeltia, Calvet goes on to lead a number of scientific breakthroughs that eventually earn his ticket back to teaching.
