Introduction
A wife and daughter go to see a man who has abandoned them 16 years ago. What caused their separation? Their reunion doesn't last very long. The empty space of time leaves it to be filled with love, hatred and meaninglessness. This film doesn't explain concretely neither the cause of their separation, nor the reason of their reunion. And it shows again their separatioin with long silence. A tragedy of a family is flowingly described by poetry of image.
