The clash between the State and the social movements in Spain in 2011 laid bare the true nature of power. The police crackdown was a response to the largest protest to date. Three hundred thousand demonstrators were faced with the most violent side of democracy. Using images of these events taken from various sources, this film reflects on democracy, power and its symbols, the role of the media and violence, as well as questioning the language of film and the scope of its possibilities.
