    • Synopsis
    • Summertime. Carolina is pregnant. Waiting days until Lila is born. In a small house in the hills of Cordoba, the building of a family begins. Carolina and Darío become parents and therefore, a new life begins.
      He is an audiovisual producer; the camera is another way of loving and looking through. It captures the essence of that rising intimacy. The very first days, the nature, the changing seasons, the rain, the fire.
      She is an art director and writes poetry. After Lila’s birth, there is a period of rest, a time when the other family members get close together and accompany each other. But it is time Carolina goes back to work, and this time, it involves setting the scenography of a TV show and movie while taking care of Lila. Dario follows and films them. He films and asks himself if, perhaps, filming is a way of getting away from himself.
      A question throbs inside him: How to be a father – a mother? No one knows, but they explore it through poems, through everyday routine, through them.
      The house is being built; it is being transformed. Lila plays around, talks, interferes in the recordings, and looks for her dad behind the camera.
      Carolina is pregnant again. The mountain is recovering from the fire. Darío continues to film the women he loves but it is getting harder to get it on tape.
      She goes into labor again, now with her second daughter, fears arise and Julia is born.
      The little house in the hills is now bigger; they are a family of four. Lila takes the camera, the sun sets and the sky moves along. A family grows.
