The gatekeepers along a gauge railway line in Sardinia spend their days locking and unlocking the chains that block the local level crossing. They know their job is at risk. But they keep on working. When the company decides to cut their salary they all march across the city to protest. But to no avail. Their job is deemed old-fashioned. Cadenas is the story of a world that is forced to disappear.
