Better times (Tiempos mejores)

Pedro lives in an old house, about to demolish, with his mother (who, for her age, is called grandma), his sister, Lili, just back from America, and a cook. The four of them take turns to hold the house’s main beam. As they cannot pay the bills, collectors gather around the house. The butcher and the light guy insist so much that the grandma kidnaps them and locks them up in the storage room, where they stay several days. Pedro, despite of having a career, starts working as a laborer, in order to be able to pay the bills. Finally, the neighbors find an alternative to move into another building but, for this, they will have to damage the building even more.
