In ‘La Cañada Real’ a slum just outside Madrid, tension mounts when residents are told to leave their self-built houses. The land they live on has been sold. David, the father of the family and a hard-working scrap dealer, does not want to give up and looks for a solution within the bureaucratic system. But his wife, the always cheerful Augustina, does not know what to do with despair and the younger members of the family, eldest son David, daughter-in-law Maria and the young Alejandro, are struggling with the realisation that everything will soon change.
