From the English edition of El País:

The ages of the men range from the late fifties to mid-sixties. At the drop of a hat, they have been taken back 33 years, the length of time they have been at liberty.

“Who are you?”

“We are former prisoners.”

“No, we are prisoners, because they never erased our records, nor annulled our sentences.”

The six men are in the old Segovia prison, from which two of them escaped in 1976 during an extraordinary breakout that was later made into a film.
