OPERATION FREEZE, a mandatory act announced by the future government, demands all working women age under forty to stay in the production line, to freeze their eggs for future birth, assuring them timeless fertility. Meanwhile, at a free and self-managed space somewhere in Madrid, a group of people defy the government order. Women give birth in natural way and the community raise children in participatory parenthood. They gather in the kitchen table to share food and makes discussion on self-sustainable living conditions. Among them, Gabriela, Rocio and Jaime are lovers and parents, sharing a big bed together and with other women they love and desire. In such collective way of living, can one declare “you are mine. only mine”?
