In a year of mass protests around the world, Spain is the scene of two general strikes against the government's austerity plans: on March 29 and November 14. In Barcelona, protesters gather in various parts of the city and police use rubber bullets to control them. Shops and offices close, some of their own free will, others forced by events. During this period, the ballet Don Quixote by Ludwig Minkus was performed at the Teatre del Liceu.

In the two days of the general strike, 32 students of the Master in Documentary Creation at Pompeu Fabra University take to the streets with their cameras to record the events from different points of view, following the instructions of Russian director Victor Kossakovsky. The result is a "ballet film" in which the characters, sounds and situations encountered are combined with Minkus' music in a revealing mix that produces an unpredictable effect.
