Torreblanca is Sevilla’s last neighbourhood. There, beside the highway, you can find the former Maravilla whorehouse, which has just closed for it to be turned into a refugee centre. It’s Christmas and, before the neighbours’ curious eyes, the newcomers to Spain are received by one of the Three Wise Men, to whom they may make a wish. Excited and fearing the unknown, the new guests will have to learn all about their new country and will be surprised by Spaniards just as much as Spaniards will be by them.
