About the book

The Basque country, Spain. A green paradise with wild beaches on the Atlantic coast, but also a mountainous area of sombre villages and drizzle, tormented for years by ETA terrorism. Bases on Mark Bellido’s autobiographical story, Judith Vanistendael has created an impressive graphic novel about a seller of sweets who decides to become a bodyguard. While protecting threatened politicians he moves further and further into a shadow existence that ultimately threatens to be fatal for him.
