A short film showing Spains situation 10 years after the fatal crash of the real estate market. The mostly british community in Murcia deals very differently with the resulting problem of a housing boom – some play golf like nothing has ever happened and some try to understand the international investement system that was mostly driven by greed. Meanwhile the spanish population has to deal with the situation as it is till this day.
