Instituto Cervantes - Café Literario
Lincoln House, Lincoln Place 2 Dublin
Five stories intertwine in a big city neighborhood. They are five worlds linked by their daily routine, with the bar, the shops and the market as the key place. These people show us their concerns, fears, hopes and dreams. The fear of illness or loneliness felt by Mariano and Conchi, two retired people living in the neighborhood, the hope and sadness felt by Raquel, a middle-aged woman who experiences love over the Internet, the uncertain future of Cesar and Opo, two young people who work in the local supermarket and who are organizing their holiday, or Lolo´s discovery that there is another world beyond his bar, thanks to his relationship with Mao, his new cook….all this takes us through life in a working-class neighborhood with a script full of tenderness, comedy and bitterness.
