Summary, etc.:
En plena Guerra Civil española, el joven médico Víctor Dalmau, junto a su amiga pianista Roser Bruguera, se ven obligados a abandonar Barcelona, exiliarse y cruzar los Pirineos rumbo a Francia. A bordo del Winnipeg, un navío fletado por el poeta Pablo Neruda que llevó a más de dos mil españoles rumbo a Valparaíso, embarcarán en busca de la paz y la libertad que no tuvieron en su país. Recibidos como héroes en Chile --ese "largo pétalo de mar y nieve", en palabras del poeta chileno--, se integrarán en la vida social del país durante varias décadas hasta el golpe de Estado que derrocó al doctor Salvador Allende, amigo de Víctor por su común afición al ajedrez. Víctor y Roser se encontrarán nuevamente desarraigados, pero como dice la autora: "Si uno vive lo suficiente, todos los círculos se cierran".
Dr. Victor Dalmau and pianist Roser Bruguera flee Spain after the Civil War to travel aboard the Winnipeg and settle in Chile, but are again uprooted after the 1973 coup againt Victor's chess partner Salvador Allende.
