The Pérez family, a couple in their sixties with their three kids dream of improving their life by moving to the capital. They attempt to put their grueling country life behind during an extremely difficult time. Every day they spend in Madrid becomes a failed attempt in survival. Consequently, their attempt to prosper in honesty turns into a failed project as the city life ends up corrupting them. The reality of Madrid is nothing like what they expected: blue-collar neighborhoods packed with workers, with insufficient resources where the black market and delinquency become the staples of everyday life.
