This play, originally written in Catalan, is a sensitive recreation of the story of the orthopaedic surgeon Josep Trueta (Barcelona 1897-1977) and of the personal, professional and political dilemmas derived from his development of a revolutionary technique in the treatment of the injured in Barcelona during the Spanish Civil War and in London and Oxford during the Second World War
