Bill Brown and Sabine Gruffat travel across Spain to document the consequences of the housing crisis.
What they find are Spanish citizens, inspired by the politics of The 15M Movement and Occupy Wall Street, who are mobilizing, collectivizing, and fighting for their right for a decent place to live.
Along the way, the filmmakers visit young mothers and their families squatting in failed condo developments; intentional communities of mountain cave dwellers; protest campsites that have sprung up in front of bank branches; and empty apartment buildings transformed into experiments in Utopian living.
The film examines the ideologies that separate housing from home, and real estate speculation from speculations about a better way to live.
