Plot Summary

Marcelino Sanz de Sautuola y de la Pedrueca, in 1868, accidentally discovered Paleolithic paintings with the help of a hunter named Modesto Cubillas inside Altamira's caves, located in Cantabria, north to Spain. Trying to expose their discovery to the academic world for that they study the paintings, Sautuola crashed against the skepticism and discredit of all experts, who claimed that the caves were false and the paintings made for the own Sautuola, in a effort to get rich. Looking for the truth, Sautuola was the rest of his life fighting to prove that those paintings were real, trying to restore his innocence from the accusations of falsehood launched against him.

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia Antonio Banderas was offered to visit the real Altamira cave, but he refused the offer. The cave has been closed to the general public since 2002 because public attendance was deteriorating the paintings. Banderas felt unfair to be granted a special permission and instead worked on the faithful replica which was built in a museum near the cave in 2001. See more »
Goofs At the end of the movie, it is said that Marcelino Sanz de Sautuola died in 1889. He actually died on June 2, 1888. See more »
