Synopsis

Juan and his eight brothers and sisters and dozens of cousins live in Can Tunis.His mother is in jail and his father tries to take care of the family as well as he can. Can Tunis is a seedy suburb of Barcelona. Since the 1980’s, it’s the place where drug addicts come to get their fix. The local authorities are determined to knock down the entire quarter. The city has already commenced demolition: half the neighbourhood is in ruins. Can Tunis is a sincere and poignanr portrait of a neighbourhood in utter disorder. How will these people ever be able to hold out in a better area of Barcelona.
