Miguel Hermoso's La Luz Prodigiosa (Marvelous Light) examines what might have happened if famed Spanish writer Federico Garcia Lorca had not been executed at the beginning of the Spanish Civil War. In Grenada in 1936 Joaquin (Ivan Corvacho Cervantes) delivers a man he decides to call Galapago (Sergio Villanueva) to nuns after Galapago is shot. Fifty years later, Joaquin comes back to Grenada and is conned by Adela (Kiti Manver). Joaquin decides to find Galapago, who is now homeless. Joaquin and Adela soon suspect that Galapago may be Lorca, and each reacts to the situation differently. The music for Marvelous Light was written by the great Ennio Morricone.
