Synopsis

Three stories that are part of the same story. In 1941, in a provincial town in Argentina, a girl confesses to a priest the first and diffuse sexual impulses she notices in her body, related to the attraction she feels for a young man named Videla who passes under her window every day. In 1977 a group of young revolutionaries prepares an attack on an airfield to liquidate a Videla who is no longer young and is known to all. And finally, an old woman -the girl in the first story- plays a game of cards with her grandson, who has come to visit her at the residence where she spends her days, and between moves tells him what happened to her son, the boy’s father, in what turns out to be a new confession.

Synopsis

While he and his brothers are building the plane they will patent with the family name to mark the anniversary of their father’s death, a film director uses the excuse of documenting the process to conduct a series of interviews with his family. In the interviews, he confronts the issues the family have never spoken of: who was the person that left their home when he was only three years old?
