    • Synopsis
    • Antonio Pujia is a renown sculptor who feels somewhat disregarded by modernism. As a result of the audience’s indifference, he works alone in his workshop with the sole objective of carrying out an art exhibition.
      His wife Susana, concerned about her husband’s withdrawal, asks their children to cheer him up. However, failing at the task, his granddaughter Bianca, pushes the rest of the family into organizing an exhibition themselves.
      Thus, Susana and her children decide to undertake this secret venture, even at the cost of damaging their own family relations. When Antonio learns of his family’s initiative, he’s more than thrilled to join the project, and starts modeling a sculpture of his own granddaughter.
      After several failed attempts at different galleries the family becomes weary and on the verge of a schism. Just as they are about to break the news to Antonio a Museum offers a new prospect, thus renewing both expectation and struggle. This culminates in the resolution of interpersonal conflict and the long-awaited exhibition.
