A five-part anthology film inspired by living in isolation, At Home (En casa), is scheduled to be made available in Spain in the next few weeks and in other HBO Europe territories at a later date. The portmanteau project has been created by Warner Bros ITVP España, in collaboration with Caballo Films, exclusively for HBO Europe.

Each episode will be approximately 15 minutes long. Five directors, five stories, the same circumstances: a period of confinement. This is the premise of At Home, a fiction series from Spain born of the unprecedented situation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The episodes will be filmed in the homes where the directors are confined, with their only collaborators being the people they are self-isolating with. They have been provided with some basic equipment to create their episodes, including a smartphone.

). They will all create and direct an episode of this five-part anthology series, each of which examines the situation created by COVID-19. Each episode will take on different genres, including romantic comedy, drama and fantasy. Through each director's point of view, At Home poses questions about life in isolation.

The plot lines are: what would happen if your boyfriend left you the morning the confinement was announced? Could being quarantined at home be a brutally liberating experience? What if isolating with your partner makes you discover that they are not who you thought they were? Is it possible to travel in this context without leaving the room? And what would it be like to live through this experience in a commune with seven friends?
