Five characters, five stories slowly intertwining, burned by the hot Catalan sun. Raul is a farmer whose crop is being destroyed by pests. Moldovan immigrant Iurie is a professional wrestler who works at his farm in his spare time. Rosemarie, a Philippine woman, is a caregiver at the local retirement home where she meets Marie, who is almost ninety and cannot cope with the fact that she had to leave her own home. The last character is the prostitute Maribel, who is getting old and losing her clients. This film is balancing between documentary and fiction and captures real people from around Barcelona, who play themselves and allow the viewers to peek into their everyday lives.
