Storyline

Killian is a young man who has never left the remote mountains of Huesca (Spain) which saw him grow up. In 1953, he travels back to the exotic Equatorial African island of Fernando Poo, in Spanish Guinee, where he was born, to work in a cacao plantation alongside his father and his brother. During 20 years in this island, until the troubled days of independence, he will undertake a journey towards maturity and knowledge, but will also have to deal with pain and loss.

Goofs

During the dance club scene, set in 1953/4, the guitarist is playing a custom colour Fender Stratocaster. The Fender Stratocaster was introduced in the USA in 1954, and custom colours weren't available until 1956/7. Also, it if very doubtful any African musician could afford such an instrument. The first Stratocaster didn't reach the UK until 1958. See more »

User Reviews

 
Very interesting if not poignant drama...

My only criticism was the poor English dubbing of language, which unfortunately, became laughable at moments, truly damaging the effect...Otherwise? If you pay attention and follow the plot-line, very interesting absorbing romance/drama with historical context and interest.
