DOCUMENTARY After the death of her father, director Agustina Comedi sets out to find out who he really was – and discovers unknown sexual and political activism.
When her father Jaime dies, Agustina Comedi is suddenly confronted with the leftovers of a life. Besides the usual vestiges, Jaime left more than 100 hours of personal video material. He seem to have filmed everything, even his own death. Agustina wants to better understand her father, but it soon becomes clear how many secrets he had. The video material raises questions about desire, sexuality and freedom. For Agustina, it is the start of a journey back to her childhood – and soon her own past takes on a political dimension.
