1992 is highly-regarded as a great year for Spain. The Universal Exposition of Seville and the Olympics Games of Barcelona introduces the modernity and the development of the country to the rest of the world.

The topic where everyone end up is the other sido of that year: The riots due to the industrial crisis of 1992 and how these culminate in the burning of the Regional Parlament of the city.
