Songs, words, places. Nacho Vegas visits some of the most significant events and sites of the insurrection led by Asturian workers and peasants in October of 1934, the last proletarian revolution in Europe, and he does it with popular music as his map, and the words of Belarmino Tomás, President of the Third Revolutionary Committee, as his compass.
