The plot of "Vecinas" is a delirious story of "condominium terrorism" that narrates the vicissitudes of a pusillanimous doorman of a building (Pep Noguera). He is harassed and manipulated by two quirky neighbors (Otilia Laiz and Dolors Corderas) who have been at each other's throats for years. It is a black comedy in which the situation gets more and more tense leading up to a surprising ending.
This story has multiple perspectives: the comic, the dramatic, the urban horror, the social chronicle. Also, the "geek" universe is so fashionable nowadays. But the most incredible thing about this story, worthy of national black chronicle, is that it is born from real situations as seen in a report of a popular television program. During the writing process, these situations were conveniently modified and exaggerated for dramatic effect. It is, therefore, a work of fiction inspired by real events.
A man sows a seed. With hard work, knowledge and care, he makes the plant grow. He harvests its fruits and uses and enjoys them.
