Our film preserves the memory of an old woman in Barcelona who represents a world gone-by of old arias on vinyl records. Leocadia, the main character, has been running a small family music shop on Las Ramblas for many decades. The camera observes the last, very hard, months of her work because her shop is to be closed down. Her shop sells classical music albums on vinyl.
She begins to throw away her old records, leaving them on benches along Las Ramblas as she takes her beloved little dog for a walk. By leaving the records, she leaves traces of her past behind her.

A Polish Film Institute Co-financed Production.
