    • Synopsis
    • Ana is a divorced architect with two daughters. Her parents, Julia and Andrés, are Chilean exiles who settled in Costa Rica in the 70s, fleeing from the military dictatorship. For Ana it is difficult to manage the house with two girls and the questions of Claudia, her eight year old daughter, who blames her for the father’s absence.

      There is a possibility for Ana in her work: a project that would mean moving to Mexico and taking off her professionally. Her mother, who left family, home, and work to follow her husband, even though she didn’t share his political thought, doesn’t understand the “selfishness” of her daughter, although she regrets that decision every day.

      In the middle of the separation of Julia and Andres, and her dad’s cancer diagnosis, Ana will have to make decisions that will affect her entire family.
