Février 1939. Complètement submergé par le flot de Républicains fuyant la dictature de Franco, le gouvernement français ne trouve comme solution que de parquer ces Espagnols dans des camps de concentration où les réfugiés n’auront d’autres choix que de construire leurs propres baraquements, de se nourrir des chevaux qui les ont portés hors de leur pays, et de mourir par centaines à cause du manque d’hygiène et d’eau…

Joe Gardner is a middle-school band teacher who gets the chance of a lifetime to play at the best jazz club in town. But one small misstep takes him from the streets of New York City to The Great Before – a fantastical place where new souls get their personalities, quirks and interests before they go to Earth. Determined to return to his life, Joe teams up with a precocious soul, 22, who has never understood the appeal of the human experience. As Joe desperately tries to show 22 what’s great about living, he may just discover the answers to some of life’s most important questions.
