Casa de nadie is a documentary essay from the point of view of two aging communities. It reflects on memory, productivity, work and their own extinction as a community. The narrative takes place in an urban retirement home in Barcelona and in a former mining colony in León which has been the victim of depopulation and economic globalization. Both locations exist crystallized, as if they were the remains of a time that, with resignation, serenity and a sense of humour, is disappearing.
