Metamorphosis is a story of an irreversible change seen through the eyes of one of many invisible citizens: Laia.
From her individual experiences, we will follow the process of Guanyem Barcelona (Barcelona In Comú) from the public presentation before the citizens in June 2014, to the victory in the municipal elections of 24‐M 2015. This documentary wants to portray the will of this group of citizens to articulate a space of confluence of social movements, neighborhood and political actors, aiming to the conquest of municipal power.
With this clear premise, the film opens various debates and issues. What leads us to become involved politically and emotionally with the change?What do we give up to make this possible? How to reconcile participation in this and other citizen movements with our day to day? And to top it all, How to work against the rules of a system that we barely manage to free ourselves from?
