In this independent drama from filmmaker Eduard Bosch, Arian (Ingrid Rubio) is a naive but idealistic young woman of Basque heritage who falls in with a terrorist group fighting for the rights of her people.
Hoping to prove her commitment, Arian volunteers to take part in a kidnapping organized by the Basque extremists, and she helps to abduct Isabel (Laia Marull), the daughter of a prominent businessman.
However, as Arian watches over Isabel as they wait to hear if her ransom will be met, the unstable leader of the terrorists (Carlos Manuel Diaz) questions if Arian truly believes in the cause, forcing her to take matters far beyond the boundaries of safety or prudence.
El Viaje de Arian was expanded from a short film Eduard Bosch had made some years earlier; the feature version was shown in competition at the 2000 San Sebastian Film Festival.
