Diogo Costa Amarante, Chile/Spain, 2009DVCAM, Colour, 50'

Romania entered the European Union on January 1, 2007. On the same day, a two-year moratorium was established on free circulation of workers coming from Romania. As a consequence of this measure, until January 1, 2009 many Romanians legally residing in Spain cannot work… Daniel is a Romanian trying to survive on the streets of Barcelona and even though he hasn't got a coat, he still has hope that in January 2009, he will manage to find a job and reorganize his life.
