Synopsis

Pedro, the son of a Burgos-born mother and a Mallorca-born father, finds solace in the works of Damià Huguet. Huguet’s poems allow him to remember his father and connect with his roots, even though he doesn’t fully understand the Mallorcan words. This experience drives Pedro to search for his identity, exploring themes of fatherhood, masculinity, and “mallorquinness”. Through poetry, Pedro questions his own feelings and embarks on a journey of self-discovery.
