From a very specific premise (a documentary on the construction of a new building in Barcelona's "barrio chino") Guerin has produced a film that is surprisingly comprehensive and universal.

A huge range of subjects and characters are present in the film (children, teenagers, homeless, the old, immigrants, drug addicts,prostitutes, etc) giving them an extraordinary metaphorical significance without departing from the documentary approach.

Shot in static shots (except for the marvellous and hopeful final tracking shot) and edited from 120 hours of footage with Guerin's characteristic precision, rhythm and visual poetry.
