    • Synopsis
    • Everything started with a phone call while Victor worked at a circus in Paris. It was his older brother telling him that their mother, Gloria, had to have a life-threatening surgery. Victor took the first plane to Santiago de Chile. A few days after arriving, he installed himself at the hospital with her mother, decided to register every moment with her.
      Twenty years ago, Gloria worked in public relations in a hotel. Therefore, she was avoiding the surgery because she knew it will leave marks on her face, which will make her job impossible.
      The surgery went well. The chemotherapy started immediately and her son filmed her, capturing her thoughts on death and sickness. However, after a relapse, Gloria decides to quit her job and starts to say goodbye.
      These filming days allowed Victor to discover who that woman was, that he only knew as his mother, proving that is never too late to meet again with a love one, specially when life is going away.
