Ofelia de once años de edad, se enfrenta a los horrores del fascismo cuando ella y su madre embarazada se desarraigan en el campo, donde su nuevo padrastro, un sádico capitán en el ejército del general Franco, caza a las guerrillas republicanas que se niegan a renunciar a la lucha. La violenta realidad en la que vive se fusiona a la perfección con un mundo fantástico interior ★ cuando Ofelia se encuentra con un fauno en un descomposición ★ laberinto, y se encuentra en un extraño viaje ★ mítico que es a la vez aterrador y hermoso.

Clean your BONG, get some ice cream, snuggle nude with your pillow;

A dark fable set five years after the end of the Spanish Civil War. Eleven-year-old Ophelia, faces the horrors of fascism when she and her pregnant mother uproot in the field, where her new stepfather, a sadistic captain in general Franco's army, hunts the Republican guerrillas who refuse to give up the Luc Has. The violent reality in which he lives merges perfectly with a fantastic inner world when Ophelia meets a Faun in a decadent maze, and is on a strange mythical journey that is both terrifying and beautiful.
