     EL COBERT (The JunkRoom)  synopsis - Two sisters and a brother that live very different styles of life get together for the sorting out and emptying of the junk room that will precede the sale of their family home in nowadays Catalonia ( unfortunately  Spain yet).

    As they do so, the “ghosts” of the Spanish Civil War and of Franco’s dictatorship that have left a deeply entrenched imprint of frustration and powerlessness in the previous generations and that remain in force nowadays due to the unconscious attitude and incapacity to confront the past of both many of the family members and the society around them, are invoked to show a pattern of repeated tensions and failed conducts that prevent communication and acceptance between the three brothers and sisters and symbolically of modern Catalan society in their efforts to lead creative and rewarding lives.
