The film aims, from an epic view, take a look at the origins and the Catalan roots giving a new perspective. The film goes ahead and back between the fifteenth and eighth centuries explaining the first historical reference written about the legend of Otger Cataló, which it was transmitted orally to Pere Tomic, Benedictine monk, in 1438 at the Monastery of Sant Llorenç (Berguedà)

    Per favor, podrieu dir-me si penseu possar subtitols en angles a la pelicula. Per mi es molt important perque es una eina pels estudiants que aprenen la nostra llengua.
