In Chile in the winter of 1976, Carmen heads off to her beach house to supervise its renovation. Her husband, children and grandchildren come back and forth during the winter vacation. When the family priest asks her to take care of a young man he is sheltering in secret, Carmen steps onto unexplored territories, away from the quiet life she is used to. This feature debut by Manuela Martelli explores one woman's struggle with misogyny and corruption under Pinochet's rule.
