Camping life is a documentary that portrays life on a Costa Brava campsite during the summer of 2020. The camera follows the various stories and anecdotes of the day to day life of the uninhibited campers with the intention to portray the concept of holidays for contemporary man. The film makes a unique portrait of how the coronavirus crisis was experienced during the summer of 2020 by a middle class determined to be able to enjoy their recreation time no matter what. Finally, the concept of an ephemeral city is explored, which comes alive every summer to become an organic entity devoted to leisure, and then just as quickly fades away at the end of the summer as it's population disappears.

The documentary combines the testimonies of the campers with cinematic scenes, both marked with a sense of humour.  The campsite is presented to us as a closed space that is isolated from the world where the guests can live sheltered from the responsibilities of daily life, as well as outside concerns, including the coronavirus crisis. From this point of view, the camera views seemingly common situations (such as taking selfies or barbeques), and yet they take on a new ironic perspective under the filmmaker's gaze.  Lastly, the film is a celebration of life in the great outdoors and freedom in a time of confinement and restricted mobility.
