"Three rebels willing to take on the world.
Two lovers risking it all.
One story, untold until now."
A powerful story of love, art and betrayal from Oscar nominated director Paul Morrison (SOLOMON AND GAENOR), the films stars Robert Pattinson (HARRY POTTER, TWILIGHT) and Matthew McNulty (BAFTA Award winning SEE NO EVIL: THE MOORS MURDERS and THE MARK OF CAIN).
Madrid 1922. A city wavering on the edge of change as traditional values are challenged by the dangerous new influences of Jazz, Freud and the avant-garde. Salvador Dali (Robert Pattinson) arrives at university: 18 years old and determined to become a great artist. His bizarre blend of shyness and rampant exhibitionism attracts the attention of two of the university's social elite - Federico Garcia Lorca (Javier Beltran) and Luis Bunuel (Matthew McNulty).
Salvador is absorbed into their decadent group and for a time Salvador, Luis and Federico become a formidable trio, the most ultra-modern group in Madrid. However as time passes, Salvador feels an increasingly strong pull towards the charismatic Federico - who is himself oblivious of the attentions he is getting from his beautiful writer friend, Margarita (Marina Gatell). Finally, in the face of his friends' preoccupations - and Federico's growing renown as a poet - Luis sets off for Paris in search of his own artistic success.
Federico and Salvador spend the holiday in the seaside town of Cadaques. Both the idyllic surroundings and the warmth of the Dali family sweep Federico off his feet. Salvador and he draw closer, sharing their deepest beliefs, inspirations and secrets, convinced that they have found a kind of friendship undreamt of by others. It is more than a meeting of the minds; it is a fusion of souls. And then one night, in the phosphorescent water, it becomes something else...
