    • Synopsis

    • Mario is ill and wishes to give the best memory ever as a gift to Samuel (Lito). Thus father and son go the road together to make up for their lost time and, through arid and astonishing landscapes, they will learn to give themselves a new chance. Elena, mother and wife, anxiously awaits for their return while writing her personal diary. Yet soon she will immerse herself in an inner and rather riskier kind of experience which will test her own limits. This film is a moving story about the ephemeral and the ins and outs of family love. A profound tribute both to those who have taken care of a loved one and to the possibility of daring to start all over again. “Talking To Ourselves” is a journey of liberation and redemption.
