Residents of the southeastern Spanish town of Ibi stage a mock military coup, pelting each other with flour and eggs. The battle is a part of a 200-year-old festival known as Els Enfarinats.

Following the tradition, a group called 'Els Enfarinats' stage a revolution against the authorities, taking control of the village for the day, pronouncing a bunch of ridiculous laws and fining citizens who infringe them. Another group called 'La Oposicio' (the Opposition) tries to restore order. Any money raised through fines is donated to charity.
