Sinopsi

Andrés Rabadán caused three trains to derail in 1994 at just 19 years of age. A few days later he turned himself in to the police after killing his father with a crossbow. He was sentenced to a psychiatric ward until he was no longer considered to be a threat to society. In the past fifteen years, Andrés has begun to paint and write, and is now even married. Some psychiatrists believe him to be “cured”, while others feel that he ought to still be locked up. Yet it is here where the debate begins: does somebody who has committed a horrible crime deserve a second chance?

About direction ()

Sara Grimal and Alonso Carnicer are reporters of TV3. They have carried out together reports and documentaries about the urban transformations of the territory through the time, the patrimony, the memory and the landscape. One of their works is the documentary series Retrats d'indians, about the mark of the collective memory and architectonic patrimony of those that returned from America and Retorn a l'Edèn, about the creation of landscapes in the urban context. They have collaborated in the news program with reports as El paisatge de la cançó and Els senyals del temps about the culture of the rural world, and reports for the program called “30 Minuts” such as Marcats pel temps about the relationship between the people, the annual cycle and the climate, and El valor d'un paisatge about the current transformation of the territory.
