After the closure of their shipyard in Northern Spain, a few former workers – Santa, José, Lino, Amador, Sergei and Reina – keep in touch. They meet mainly at a bar owned by their former colleague Rico. Santa is the most superficially confident and the unofficial leader of the group. A court case hangs over him relating to a shipyard lamp he smashed during protest against the closure. José is bitter that his wife, Ana, is employed when he is not. The gap between them is widening and he is fearful that she will leave him for a co-worker. Despite arthritic legs, Ana endures night shifts at a fish factory and thinks her looks are now lost. Not everyone seems to agree including her boss. Lino, an aging family man, doggedly pursues positions beyond his qualifications. The oldest member of the group, Amador, has degenerated into alcoholism after being abandoned by his wife; maintaining an increasingly transparent pretense that his wife will soon return from holiday. Reina has managed to find a job as a watchman at a football club, smuggling his friends into a game. Lino attends job interviews despite applicants being nearer his son's age. Sergei claims his career as an astronaut was forestalled by economic measures in the Soviet Space program.

Caye (Candela Peña) goes to Gloria’s Hair Salon which she frequents and discusses everything from life to politics during her time off with other customers; who are also her friends. They have a shared hatred toward the immigrant prostitutes they observe from the salon. This is because some of them (including Caye) are also prostitutes and feel the immigrants take clients (and ultimately business and money) from them.

Javi, Manu, and Rai are friends from school. They are teenagers, and they talk about girls a lot but seldom talk with them. They live together in the barrio (neighbourhood). It is a barrio of large social housing blocks. There is little to do, and in August even less. The centre of the city is far away, so the three friends spend most of their time in the barrio. The television news says that thousands of inhabitants of the city have gone to the coast for the summer. They wish they were among them. The windows of the travel agents are full of tempting offers. But their lives demonstrate how hard it is to leave the barrio and how hard it is to improve their situation. In the end, their lives take an unexpected turn.

Les « invisibles », ce sont ceux que nous refusons de voir – des gens qui ne retiennent que très rarement l’attention des médias occidentaux et ceux qui s’occupent d’eux sans relâche. Ce film est particulièrement consacré à tous ceux qui facilitent et soutiennent le travail de l’organisation d’aide internationale Médecins sans frontières dans les régions en crise ou en guerre. Ce film documentaire collectif fut produit à l’occasion du 20e anniversaire de la section espagnole de « Médecins sans frontières ». Cinq réalisateurs sont allés sur place, là où ces derniers travaillent.
