Dani, when he was young, fell into drugs. He started with solvents and base paste and could never put it down. He started stealing from his own house to be able to consume. Ever tried to work formally but all the doors were closed. More than thirty years of consumption have led him to live on the street where he subsists collecting scrap metal and reselling it by the pound.
El Dani, de joven cayó en la droga. Comenzó con solventes y pasta base y nunca lo pudo dejar. Comenzó robando en su propia casa para poder consumir. Alguna vez intentó trabajar formalmente pero todas las puertas estaban cerradas. Más de treinta años de consumo lo han llevado a vivir en la calle en donde subsiste recogiendo chatarra y revendiendo al kilo.
