As a result of his father’s Alzheimer’s disease, Maite decides to recover the unknown and silenced story of his grandfather Pedro, one of many Spaniards who in 1939 had to go into exile in France, leaving behind his wife Maria and their two sons. Through archive footage, words, memories, silence and, especially, 46 letters that Pedro wrote to María from exile, Maite will discover and imagine this unique and epic family story, testimony of a part of History.
