What are the costs that, for many generations, women have suffered and that are subject to the mandates of the hetero-patriarchy, which have been made so dearly invisible? This poetic and reflective piece recovers the personal diaries of the director's grandmother and contrasts her confidences with the grandfather's family films. A piece that subtly unveils the existence of two stories about common life, family, and future expectations that turn the apparent happiness shown in the images upside down.
