Two Argentinian sisters, who fled their country in 1976 during the early days of the military dictatorship, one bound for Spain and the other for Texas, get together again in the 1980s at the house of the latter. Through an unpublished and unfinished novel written by their father and their own memories, they manage to come to terms with their past. An intimate political-psychological-family drama that draws its strength from the story and the powerful performances of Spanish actress Ingrid Rubio and Argentinian actress Valeria Bertuccelli. This movie was selected for the official section of the Seminci Valladolid Film Festival.
In 1976, during the political turmoil in Argentina, two sisters flee their country right after Natalia’s politically active boyfriend Martin disappears; one goes to Spain, and the other to Texas, United States.
After eight years in Spain, Natalia travels to Texas to visit her sister Elena, who’s now a suburban wife and mother. She brings with her their father’s manuscript of his last novel. The unpublished book reveals the story of their family during the Argentine dictatorship. Using extensive flashbacks of the sisters early years in Argentina during the “junta” dictatorship, the director reveals family guilt and suppressed resentment.
