The goal of this documentary is to give a kind of snapshot of people's lives in the neighborhood of Raval in Barcelona on a normal day in wintertime in 2009. The idea was to accompany people with very distinct points of view through their everyday lives. All of these stories combine as part of one day in Raval, in which the camera changes situation and thus perspective over time, also meeting people to accompany and follow them on part of their daily route, observing and listening to their impressions of daily life in the neighbourhood. The cinematic design is to be clearly distinguishable and stand out from a classic reportage or documentary film style. The film does not follow a story in the classical way, it does not use any interviews, a narrative voice or music which is not part of the ambience in the image. Instead the camera is observing simple situations in the daily life in the Raval neighbourhood, following its main protagonists as a silent observer in their ordinary life.
