On a hot August afternoon, the family gathers around the table. Everyone’s memories come together to recall the story of Uncle Button. From the dictatorship to the emigration to France, where he worked as a rubbish man, and when he returned to Belmonte in his van full of “rubbish” that he turned into a real treasure.
