Mikel lives with his wife and two children in Costur, an idyllic Spanish town surrounded by hills.
He has a job selling confectionary, but Mikel is a dreamer, not a businessman, and money is tight.
What's more, the mundanity of small-town life is preventing him from fulfilling a life-long dream: to become a writer. Seeking both drama and financial security, Mikel takes a job as a bodyguard.
His family is soon uprooted to the Basque country, where Mikel is charged with protecting politicians from the armed separatist group ETA.
It is a job that provides drama worthy of the pagebut only at the cost of fear, uncertainty and family breakdown.
In Mikel, author Mark Bellido draws on his own experiences to create a powerful and provocative story about a man who risks everything in the pursuit of a dream.
