Synopsis:

Strange things happen in the Balearic coast: smell of pee and blood, police cars and ambulances going through the streets without anyone paying attention to it. Every year, one million tourists, majority of them Brits, crowd the streets of Magaluf during the summer. They invade the public space and transform it to a thematic park where everything is allowed. For the locals, this feels like an invasion but on the other hand produces millions of euros and jobs.
