Synopsis

2016. Paco lives in Madrid's main square, the Plaza Mayor. He can't get used to the thousands of celebrations, demonstrations, parades and other noisy citizen gatherings underneath his balcony. This time an entire orchestra is playing La Gran Vía to celebrate the centenary of the building of the street of that name. Despite the racket, Paco manages to fall into a deep sleep until more shouting wakes him up. To his surprise he finds himself walking through the streets of late nineteenth century Madrid. Not only does he walk, he also talks to the streets. Everyone talks to him as if it was a perfectly natural thing to do: the streets, the statues, the politicians, the local people from Madrid, the "Generation of '98" literary group, notable musicians... They all invite him to start a crazy walk through a nineteenth century Madrid which is suspiciously similar to the city as it is now. Perhaps because the person having this dream is a man from the 21st century, or, perhaps, because we really haven't changed so much either…
