What you need to know before your trail

A helicopter arrives at a Santander hospital to transport some injured mountaineers found in a cave in the Picos de Europa. However, during the rescue, the Civil Guard also finds the body of a man holding a newspaper clipping dated 1983, many years before his death.

The mountains, the caves and the hospital will share their secrets…..
