Marcia wants to change the family habit of not talking about her tragic past. 35 years have passed since the coup d'état in Chile that overthrew his grandfather Salvador Allende, and believes that the time has come to recover the images of daily life, losses with the coup and discover the intimate past, which has been submerged under the Allende's political transcendence, exile and the pain of his family.

With a warm and sharp look, Marcia draws a family portrait that addresses the complexities of irreparable losses and the role of memory in three generations of an iconic family. That translucent look appeals to the viewer's own intimacy, making him feel a present witness of history.
