They are 150 inhabitants in one of the last industrial settlements in Catalonia, l'Ametlla de Merola. Most of them no longer work in the textile factory, but there is one thing that keeps them together: Theatre. For 140 years, every Christmas, they stage a traditional play, “Els Pastorets” (“Little Shepherds”). But their theatre building is old and on the verge of eviction. Despite this, they don't have the money to carry out the rehabilitation, everyone comes together to save their theatre as it embodies the soul of the community. And when they least expect it, they win “La Grossa” (the Catalan National Lottery). And what seems like an enormous luck ends up becoming a series of new problems.
