El peso de la manta

On the streets of Barcelona, the most visible yet invisible immigrants of all struggle to survive through illegal street selling. Victims of relentless racism, persecuted by the police, and silent for many years, they have finally found a voice and created a union. Their demands are simple: more understanding, more awareness, more dignity. Our documentary follows their struggle.
