The film was shot in Madrid during a trash strike. The desperation to find day after day the horribly dirty streets became the impetus for profiting the great settings in which the city had become.
We improvised a story in which a girl, newly arrived in the city, tries to throw used tissues. All bins and containers are full of rubbish accumulated over days. When the girl gets most desperate about not finding a place to dump her waste a woman appears who further more complicates her life when she leaves her dog and runs away. From that moment on she must also find a place in which to discharge the waste generated by the dog's needs. And nobody can help her.
The movie is conceived as a silent film. Accordion music is composed and played by Joe Barnara for the story. Interruptions of the soundtrack are taken from urban sounds that work too as sound waste.
Photography treatment intends to convert the useless waste into objects with aesthetic function.
