Juan Ignacio was eight years old when his father’s body was found on a beach. His mother, a psychiatrist, decided an autopsy was unnecessary, even though his father had been depressed and had psychiatric medication among his belongings. Thirty years later, the filmmaker tries to find out what happened, who his father was and how his mother arrived at her decision.
The filmmaker seizes on every possible lead to add detail to the picture of his father, including trying to find the police report from the moment when his father died. It’s a film about a mystery and a yearning, lost, depression and love, as well as an exploration of what a person’s tangible legacy can be, and how difficult that is to capture.
