It will be interesting also to see how the UK fits in to this. Will it be Europe that works together, or the EU? This could really turn the tables for the UK and show weaknesses in Brexit

Sánchez has already spoken about the hope for leaders to come up with a collaboration package like a kind of Plan Marshall introduced by the States after WWII.

Villar del Río es un pequeño y tranquilo pueblo en el que nunca pasa nada. Sin embargo, el mismo día en que llega la cantante folclórica Carmen Vargas, el alcalde recibe la noticia de la inminente visita de un comité del Plan Marshall. La noticia provoca un gran revuelo entre los vecinos que quieren impresionar y ofrecer a los americanos un recibimiento muy especial.
