When the father of a young woman with a dark past falls ill and needs her help to survive, she must learn to let go of the pain and forge on into the future in this harrowing and affecting drama from filmmaker Fito Paez. For years Carmen Uranga (Celia Roth) had suffered the torture inflicted upon her under the Argentinean dictatorship. Later moving to Madrid and making ends meet by offering her body for sale, Carmen soon receives word that her father has suffered a stroke and quickly returns to Argentina to be close to her family. As the past continues to haunt her and she attempts to learn how to love again, a shocking revelation threatens to consume everything that she has ever dreamed of and send her into an irreversible spiral of despair.
