SYNOPSIS

Jorge (43), a film director, finds some cassette tapes in which his mother, now sick with the Alzheimer's disease, tells how she emigrated alone to France, being still really young, in the midst of Franco’s dictatorship to give birth to her daughter Ester. This discovery will confront both siblings since Ester assures that Luisa is not the "perfect mother" that Jorge believes she is. To his surprise, Jorge discovers that Ester is right: Luisa has been lying to him about his father's identity all his life. Through the tapes, the film director begins a journey into the past seeking the truth, while witnessing at the same time Luisa’s struggle to be free during the second half of the 20th century.
