Nino, a nine year-old boy and the son of a policeman, lives on police headquarters in a small town of Andalucía.s Sierra Sur, and he will never forget the summer of 1947. During that summer, he will become friends with Pepe the Portuguese, a mysterious and fascinating stranger who recently moved into the watermill, with whom he will spend many afternoons talking by the river. It is also the summer when Nino will promise himself never to become a policeman like his father, and will begin working on his future by taking typing lessons at the home of the Blondes, a family of women, all widows and orphans, whose men had been executed. With Pepe and the Blondes, and with a passion for reading a never-ending list of adventure novels that he discovers during his typing lessons, Nino will become aware that the adults are not telling him the whole truth. There is a war going on in Sierra Sur and the local bandits led by Cencerro are the enemies. After that summer, however, Nino will consider them something more than brave outlaws.
