    • Synopsis
    • With more questions than answers, the director of the film starts a journey to clarify the circumstances of her father’s death. Learning the fact that he had not died in a train accident mobilizes her to break the silence and she starts questioning the concealed social and family closets environment. This environment did not just distort the circumstances of his death, but also banned the person from their stories. This path will take her to dig up the character of that man that she lost so young and of whom she knew almost nothing until the beginning of this journey.
