Miguel Colombo

Along an intimate geographical journey, the director narrates in first person the story of his grandfather Ludovico, an Italian immigrant who arrived in Argentina after fighting in the Second World War and who soon reveals himself as disturbingly contradictory. His traces still mark his descendants to this day, and unraveling his story becomes essential to assimilate the present. In his quest for hidden secrets, the director will have to go deep into the desert, confront the gaps in his own story, redefine his identity and rebuild family bonds that were broken years ago.
