A new way of partying is back, but now away from rules and prejudices. For the first time, Uri (19) goes to a rave on the mountain of Montjuïc (Barcelona), hiding from his parents and longing to find his place. Surprisingly, he doesn’t seem to fit in at the party, but manages to find a hint of positivity in the decadent place.
