I grew up in a town near a big city. No matter its name, all locations around the capital are roughly equal.

Before being large urban centers which are now were small towns to which, in the sixties, many people went from all over the country with the idea of working in the capital.Since then they have undergone tremendous changes. Its population has grown exponentially and most of these cities is about 100,000 people. They have quality public services, entertainment and a standard of living more than remarkable.

However, despite this great development, life seems to have stood at some time. The important things happen a few miles from here, in the big city but here in the suburbs do not seem to realize. It seems that energy has moved to the big malls around the town leaving it empty, hollow. Everyone seems to be passing, whether to go to the capital to work or to spend the weekend shopping. In the placid suburb, life goes smoothly and even a strange sense of ennui and melancholy pervades everything. This series tries to pick those feelings.
