At a local market struggling to survive, the work, personal and sentimental relationships of all those who work there are continually interwoven. A municipal inspection questions the viability of the market’s activity and claims that the building needs to be reconverted to a better use. Behind this decision, though, lurks a powerful investment fund that wants to turn the building into a luxury shopping centre. The market vendors association manages to get an adjournment of city council’s decision: they are given a year to modernize the premises. But not all the market families are of the same opinion: some would prefer to seize the opportunity to make some easy money.
