Spanish actor Gustavo Salmerón steps behind the camera to capture the winsome eccentricities of his extraordinary mother Julita, who had three dreams: having lots of kids, owning a monkey, and living in a castle.  Using Super 8, digicam, and even iPhone camera footage, Gustavo documents his mother for a decade and a half, during which the worldwide financial collapse happens. As his parents are forced to move out of their castle and the six children help to pack up all the junk, they have to face the truth about their hoarding habits. The film won the Best Documentary Prize on both sides of the pond at Karlovy Vary and the Hamptons, not to mention a Goya Award (the Spanish Academy Award).
