Set in the early days of the Spanish Civil War, it tells the martyrdom of 51 religious, most of them seminarians.
Organizers believe that the Mirabile Dictu Film Festival, now in its fifth edition, gets more quality and recognition every year.

"This year's edition is about maturity... We have to take a stand for quality, and we hope to do it right. The movies nominated in this edition should also give a push to the kind of cinema that we want to promote.”

Overall, more than 1,600 movies from 120 countries sent in entries in the competition.

On June 26 the jury will announce which one gets the prized and characteristic award of the festival, the Silver Fish.
