    • Synopsis
    • In 2000, Lucía traveled with her grandparents, Pepe and Heber, to Paris and Madrid, from where Pepe had had to go into exile at the age of six, escaping from the Spanish Civil War. Lucía recorded the trip with a teenage eye on her VHS camera. After Pepe passes away, Lucía reviews the footage and begins another journey: putting together that family history. A path that is not linear, with gaps and discoveries, and where the extraordinary and the ordinary intermingle, revealing that identity is a bunch of pieces that we try to put in order.
