Secret of Lucía Morke
Lucía Morke is the daughter of a Norwegian couple and she
spends the afternoons reading Gothic tales to her blind neighbour.
However, the letter from a friend who disappeared two years ago
is going to change her life forever. In it he tells her to meet
him on an empty road in Los Monegros, the scene of many urban legends.
One weekend when she is alone, after dyeing her hair black, she
sets out on a risky hitchhiking trip into the unknown. However,
at the meeting place the only thing she finds is the deserted Hotel
Limbo, and, hanging on the door, the compass that she gave him on
the day they almost kissed.
