Impressed, he started a thorough research that will bring him to face the meaning of his discovery, to recover his great uncle's memory: Alejandro Porto Leis, last republican Mayor of Serantes in Ferrol, Spain, and also to reveal his unfair end as well as anyone who one were assassinated with him.

THE SECRET OF A FROUXEIRA part of a particular situation: the parallelism between a specific family history with the History of most of the Spanish twentieth century. Two brothers, Alejandro and Eliseo, separated by ideological questions in two sides of the Spanish Civil War, this was the cause of a familiar split that arrives until the present.

Through the documentary, parallel ways of these four families converge, contributing a new perspective to the way of telling so close histories and so forgotten.
