At the end of January 2013 the largest national journals start publishing information which points to supposed corrupt practices in the government party. Some of the names involved are currently in the government.

This information appears at a moment when the unemployed are close to six millions, the country is facing the largest social cuts in democracy, evictions rise to alarming numbers,... It is preceded by scandals related to opposition parties, judiciary circles, the confederation of employers' organizations, the monarchy,...

A feeling spreads that the government cannot cope with the situation the country is going through. That, together with previous governments, has an important part of the responsibility in what has happened. A responsibility shared with the elites of the country. The country seems to be drifting and no solution appears in the horizon.

This series/diary is a dialog between the images of Juan Galisteo and Balancín de Blancos which portraits daily life in Madrid in a moment in which the population oscillates between indignation, restlessness and resignation.
