Guillermina(Leonora Balcarce) is a 30-year old who must negotiate the release of Arturo, her kidnapped grandfather (the well known Jorge Marrale.) They are in the middle of the worst economic crisis in Argentina, that shook the country in 2001-2002, leaving a very shaken middle class. Teresa (the great Mercedes Moran), Guillermina's mother is reluctant to help her father and Guillermina wants to know why. The movie moves between 1978 and 2002 and portraits the difficulties of the new generations to understand Argentina's terrible past.
