For many years, Barcelona has been selling itself to foreign capital, either through tourism or through large-scale real estate speculation. This film, which is set in the case of an emblematic working-class district of the city filmed just some days before its complete demolition, focuses on a rather secondary character, a novice architect of Swiss origin. She will be confronted with the memory of past neighbourhood struggles, as well as the new resistance movements led by the up and coming generations.
