La Mala Educación



Two boys, Ignacio and Enrique, discover love, cinema and fear in a religious school at the start of the 60´s. Father Manolo, the school principal and their literature teacher, is witness to and part of these discoveries. The three characters meet twice again, at the endof the 70´s and in the 80´s.
