It’s 2013 and the government is selling off thousands of state-subsidised flats to overseas investment funds. In The Divide, two women in Villaverde, a working-class neighbourhood in Madrid, try to hang on to theirs. A direct, dramatic and often humorous insight into two families who refuse to leave their unique community, well aware that what’s at stake isn’t just the roof above their head but their very identity.
