When journalist Augusto is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, his wife and actor Paulina decides to become his sole carer. Documentarist Maite Alberdi (The Mole Agent) draws on archive footage of Augusto reporting on the Pinochet dictatorship, intimate moments filmed by Paulina on her phone and home movies to craft a delicate account of political memory, love and commitment.
