Nino, hijo de guardia civil, tiene nueve anos, vive en la casa cuartel de un pueblo de la Sierra Sur de Jaen, y nunca podra olvidar el verano de 1947. Pepe el Portugues, el forastero misterioso, fascinante, que acaba de instalarse en un molino apartado, se convierte en su amigo y su modelo, el hombre en el que le gustaria convertirse alguna vez. Mientras pasan juntos las tardes a la orilla del rio, Nino se jurara a si mismo que nunca sera guardia civil como su padre, y comenzara a recibir clases de mecanografia en el cortijo de las Rubias, donde una familia de mujeres solas, viudas y huerfanas, resiste en la frontera entre el monte y el llano. Mientras descubre un mundo nuevo gracias a las novelas de aventuras que le convertiran en otra persona, Nino comprende una verdad que nadie habia querido contarle. En la Sierra Sur se esta librando una guerra, pero los enemigos de su padre no son los suyos. Tras ese verano, empezara a mirar con otros ojos a los guerrilleros de Cencerro, y a entender por que su padre quiere que aprenda mecanografia.
