Five interwoven stories in a metropolitan neighbourhood. Five worlds connected by their day to day activities, with the bar, the shops and the market as the nucleus, each world shaped by its own special concerns and fears, hopes and dreams.
Mariano and Conchi's fear of illness or being alone in their old age; the hopes and sorrows of Raquel, a middle-aged woman who lives out her love via the internet; the uncertainty of the future of Cesar and Opo, two young guys who work at the local supermarket and are preparing their vacation; or Lolo's realisation that there's something else in life than his bar thanks to his relationship with Mao, his new chef. All stories that lead us through life in a working class neighbourhood, in a script full of tenderness, humour and poignancy.
Comedians José Corbacho and Juan Cruz direct their first feature film, based on stories they know only too well, stories of the neighbourhood that watched them grow up, Hospitalet de Llobregat.
