Synopsis: 

This is an auto-ethnographic documentary created through the audiovisual correspondence between two emigrated Cuban filmmakers. Two childhood friends in their forties who, facing the challenges of emigration, try to rebuild themselves away from Cuba. An intimate and revealing film on friendship and exile.

Visual concept: 

The filmic device of the documentary will be the video-letters exchanged between the filmmakers. Two stories that overlap and are mutually influenced will emerge from this audiovisual correspondence. There will be three main spaces. A lonely and turbulent town of the Galician coast, where a character intends to explain what made her go there. Geneva, a city as perfect as a Swiss watch and where a Cuban woman tries by all means to fit. And third, Cuba, which will have a recurring incidence on the present time of the characters.
