A group of young people dance and drink at a house; the atmosphere is festive and cheerful. The socialist victory in the 1982 general elections seems recent. The night is full of euphoria and celebration. The attempted coup of 1981 appears to be quite far away. In Spain in 1982, the future was everything. However, looking closer, the future is approaching at incredible speed, like a black hole devouring everything in its path.
