In Spain during the Spanish civil war, twelve-year-old Carlos, whose father has passed away, arrives at Santa Lucia, a Catholic home for orphans. He is placed in the care of Carmen, the director, and one of the teachers, Casares. This hostile residence harbours two secrets: the Republican cache of gold, and the spirit of a child who haunts the basement.
