SYNOPSIS

Francisco trains to swim across the Parana river, a goal almost as big as finishing the documentary he started filming eight years ago . The main characters, a group of former political prisoners who paint murals in tribute to the “desaparecidos” (missing people) in the last Argentinian dictatorship, are in conflict and everything is a chaos for the film. Francisco submerges himself into a creative process, in which reality loses its meaning between his past and his family’s present.
