Original language: Galician with English subtitles

Director and producer: Diana Toucedo

Over the course of their lifetimes, men forge our history. But at what point do we lose track of our own stories? Many of the women who wait at home in their kitchens for their husbands to return, or for a missing son, an absent father, suffer open wounds that have never quite healed. Suspended in time, their hearts go on beating as they wait tirelessly. It is them against death.
