JosĂ©’s dream: he locates his grandfather shot in 1940 in Valencia and buries him with his grandmother in Badajoz

They give 8:00 p.m. in Paterna, Valencia. It's July 27, 1940 and Jose Benavides, a 40-year-old farmer, comes out of his cell. José is left-handed to plow and to think, and that is dangerous.

He has done it thanks to the tireless effort of another José, his grandson, wh...
