Before Oblivion

The life of Fermín goes by, divided between his work as a diablero and the confinement he lives in within his house. Like him, other families live in a vecindad in the heart of Mexico City. One day, a company colluded with the government threatens to evict the vecindad tenants in order to build a mall. Facing the threat of an eviction, the tenants join in solidarity to come out of their self-absorption and fight for a common cause.
