Los soldados

The Soldiers | El Aleph, 2013

Fran lives in Malaga and is thinking about moving in with Monica, his girlfriend from Bilbao. Fran is unaware that a murder in Bilbao is somehow connected to him and his plans to move in with his girlfriend. Yet his brother’s disappearance, a call from an ex and the weight of the past are all set to complicate things for Fran.

Pablo Aranda shows us the blurred edges of our personal homelands, the senselessness of many a belief and how love may just be the only thing we can hold on to in a world of shady relationships, little lies and betrayals. A story of intrigue and passion by one of the most promising writers of his generation.
