- ABOUT THE FILM
"Invited by her father whom she has practically never seen, Emilia, a Mexican photographer, travels to Chile full of fear. There she will meet her family, who will receive her with so much love as hypocrisy. Determined to regain her and to be accepted despite his mistakes, Isidoro will show her his simple world, where she will meet David, a man undergoing a deep crisis."
