The Onis is one among the countless bars in downtown Madrid. Open from dawn until after midnight, the bar is a meeting place for Madrilenians from all walks of life looking for coffee in the morning, for lunch or dinner, or a drink at night. Five brothers first opened the place in 1976 after migrating to Madrid in the early 1960s from a village in the north of Spain. The possibility of making money brought them into the hospitality business in the big city. Since the opening of the Onis forty years ago, they have worked together almost every single day.

Miguel Müller-Frank was born in Palma de Mallorca/Spain in 1989. He grew up in Cologne and Madrid and studied at the Academy of Media Arts Cologne. His films include the documentaries: IN BETWEEN WORLDS (2009), FRAGMENTS OF THE NIGHT (2010), TRUE BEGINNING (2012), IN LIMBO (2015), and LAS LENTEJAS Y EL DESTINO (2017).
