This documentary follows the creative process of a group of students from a chinese school in Madrid while they write a fictional story based on one of the most emblematic characters of twentieth-century Chinese society, A Q. Created by Lu Xun in 1921, and reinvented by Ma Zhuoming’s narration in 1994 as an immigrant in Spain.
Through the creation of a character that represents the group and gives it a feeling of belonging, the film attempts to explore the processes of identity construction of adolescents from Chinese immigrant families in Madrid
This collaborative project is written from the very representation that young people produce of themselves through the study of the figure of A Q. The documentary aims to meet the youth emerging from the Chinese migratory movements in Spain. When talking about oneself, it comes to light how we think we are seen by others.
Maravilla, Fuencisla and Pili, my three great aunts and the last members of a generation on the verge of extinction, spend their last days in the family residence where they were born. Surrounded by objects bearing testimonies and memories, they are devoured by their own scenography. A decoration that is an image faithful to the family and social structures of their time. A legacy after a life dedicated entirely to art.
In an attempt to preserve their memory, before their impending disintegration reduces them to ashes, I enter one last time their house, and rediscover, unearth, and rewrite their story. A biography and a lifestyle to which I simultaneously feel part of and very far away from.
The documentary works like a myth that perpetuates their eccentric existence just at the moment of their disappearance.

Communities live imprisoned in their tiny homes where life goes on normally. In front of them, and only reachable through a window, the outside world awaits and they know nothing about it except for the little information they can grasp from looking through this aperture. Oblivious to their past and their destiny, not every one of them will settle for such a monotonous and dull lifestyle.
