The documentary maker weaves this family and national portrait with the thread of her memories framed in a social club of the elite of Medellín.
The complex reality of the last 50 years of a Colombia shaken by the internal armed conflict reveals its power to reconfigure the social landscape of the country and her unique family. A conservative father, who was mayor of Medellín. A mother who abandons her role as a woman of high society and becomes a renowned intellectual, social researcher of Colombian violence, whose critical acuity to unravel truths generates enemies that corner her into exile.
An account of the country turned into a battlefield, with the civilian population plunged into the crossfire of its various actors: paramilitary groups, drug cartels, guerrillas and the army. As well as the multiple failed attempts in the search for peace in a country that has no clarity about how to unravel the fabric of violence.
