Storyline

Raül, a farmer that tries to grow organic food, hires Iurie to help him in the fields. Iure is a Moldavian wrestling fighter, but in order to earn a living he has to work in whatever it comes. Slowly, their personal histories intertwine with those of three solitary women: Maria, an elder that has to leave the country house where she has always lived to join a retirement home; Rose, a nurse from Philippines who just arrived into the country; and Maribel, a prostitute that has less and less clients. The destinies of all these characters become entwined as the summer goes on. The Plague is a film of intertwining stories, that offers a moving portrait of life in the outskirts of Barcelona. The main characters are not actors. They play as themselves after four years of working with the director. This long process has permitted Ballús to reveal the uncertainty and the rebel spirit that underlies contemporary crisis-hit Spain. Written by Pau Subirós and Neus Ballús

You get different stories and characters, not all of them connected on an obvious level. Actually they seem to be quite random, but the essence is about life and how you live it. The loneliness we go through and how we deal with it. This is depicted very well in most scenes, but could also make for a very tough watch for most people.

The fact, that you get people who are workers (or were in some instances) and not a look into a higher society area, make this coherent, but you may miss some needed distraction. The characters are all very well played, though I'm not sure, we get "real" actors here or just plain people. Whatever the case, they are doing a good job and the feel of watching a documentary elevates the whole thing too.
