In 1965, six young priests in their 20s – Carlos, Eloy, Antonio, Jesus, Julio and Miguel – leave their native Spain to discover the world. As missionaries to Bolivia, they are faced with new realities: poverty, racism and injustice. They believe it is their duty to change mentalities, but becomes the ones transformed.

Now in their 70s, they live in different parts of the world: Spain, Bolivia and Canada. As the eldest shows worrying signs of Alzheimer’s and another battles cancer, they decide to retrace the journey that has once changed their lives. As they get ready for this new adventure, Carlos’ daughter, filmmaker Sandra Rodriguez, decides to follow them.

Charting an atypical adventure, her film asks: beyond heroic tales and forgetful versions of history, what is left of these six men’s utopias?
