Iván es un niño de once años que va a jugar contra los campeones del mundo de fútbol y a vivir su primera gran historia de amor. Por primera vez en la historia, una selección mundial de estrellas, un equipo que congrega a millones de personas delante de la televisión, jugará contra una Selección Mundial de niños. El objetivo es recaudar fondos y ayudar a las víctimas de un terrible terremoto ocurrido en África. Que equipos profesionales o estrellas de fútbol organicen partidos benéficos es algo que ocurre con cierta frecuencia; lo que nunca había sucedido es que en ellos participen niños.

For the first time in the history of soccer a worldwide selection of stars is going to play against a worldwide selection of… children! Ivan is an eleven-year-old boy who has been selected to play in this Children’s World Team and take part in the craziest and most unpredictable game ever played in the history of the game.

Miniserie biográfica sobre el Cardenal Tarancón, un hombre clave en la época de la Transición por sus esfuerzos para conciliar a las “dos Españas”. El asesinato por parte de ETA de Luis Carrero Blanco, el 20 de diciembre de 1973, provoca la salida de Madrid del cardenal, que es amenazado de muerte. Una vez lejos de la ciudad, Tarancón recuerda cómo era su vida cuando era un joven sacerdote prófugo durante la Guerra Civil (1936-1939).

Mini TV seriers about Cardinal Vicente Enrique y Tarancón, the man who led Spain’s Roman Catholic church during the country’s transition from a dictatorship to democracy. His outspoken defense of workers and demands for more freedom led to frequent clashes with Franco during the waning years of the dictator’s 1939-75 regime. Still, the cardinal was greatly respected because of his influence at the Vatican and his support from ordinary Spaniards.

Desde que la vio por primera vez, Joshe no pudo apartar los ojos de Usúa. Y los ojos claros, casi febriles de ella, también se clavaron en los de él. Pero ella ve más allá… En los años de la Segunda República, un pueblo del norte se conmociona con las apariciones de la Virgen. Vestida de negro, llorando y con una espada entre sus manos, la Virgen predice una horrible guerra. Al menos, eso es lo que anuncia un grupo de jóvenes que asegura verla. Los valles vascos se llenan de creyentes, curiosos y escépticos. Todos quieren ver a los visionarios. Y Usúa es una de ellos.

A true story about a group of four young people who claimed to have been visited by the Virgin Mary on a hillside in the Basque region of Spain in the 1930s. To the humble, honest folks living in Ezkioga, a lovely coastal spot blessed with both clear sandy beaches and lush grassy mountains, the sightings are shocking news. Because the Republic recently implemented a law calling for the removal of all religious statues and relics from courthouses and schools, drawing an angry protest from the Right, the sightings came with volatile political messages. Joshe, a young man working as a waiter in nearby San Sebastian and studying to become a math teacher, is the protagonist of the story, and the one who lived to tell it to the filmmakers. His fiancee, who claims she saw the Virgin but really did not, abandons early on in the film for her religion. His new flame, the dark and intriguing Usua, is the real thing, and she is the leader of the “real” visionaries.
