Mediationis making its way into Catalan society as a new way of resolving disputes without having to go to court or involve the authorities. Its preferred areas of activity are family - divorce cases are the most prominent - but also school, business, neighbourhoods and communities. However, this tool is not yet well known and is not being implemented as it should be. The documentary Mediation will allow viewers to see some of this strategy's key moments; two women fighting; a family accusing each other of violence whose case has reached the court house; and a couple arguing over child custody. The mediation is led by a team of professionals who work halfway between psychology, law, and foster caring, amongst others. But if mediation is so beneficial, why hasn't it worked here like in other countries? The documentary concludes with a comparison with Mexico, a country where mediation is integrated within the judicial system and is preferred by society because of its solvency, speed and cost saving benefits.
