La Tranquilidad Café, Avenida del Paralelo, Barcelona, 1920s. A beggar asks a man for a coin. The man gives him a gun instead and says, ‘Go to a bank and get all the money you need. It’s yours.’ Music. The show has begun.

Then there will come the time of armed struggle in towns and in the countryside, the war, the war after the war, anti-Franco resistance, the end of the dictatorship, the victory of the Socialist Party, the end of the labour movement… and back to the old struggle, only now in a world that has changed. Historical figures and anonymous characters that feel so close… our grandparents, our parents, ourselves. All of this against the backdrop of a musical. Bullets transformed into laughter that hit the mark but, instead of killing, give life to us.
