Synopsis

Choreographer Mónica returns to the small Spanish village where she was born to visit her father on his deathbed. Arriving too late, she is left to help her grieving mother sell the family home and to confront her own feelings of loss and remorse. Movement and dance give powerful emotion to newcomer Aparicio’s elegant drama about coming to terms with the past and pressing on.
