Synopsis
Camilo, 35 years old, is the son of Colombian guerrillas. He returns to his country of origin after twenty-five years in exile in Italy. In an attempt to understand the choices of his parents, he plunges into the family archives. An exciting and painful family story comes to life through extraordinary amateur films and private writings which reveal conflicts that have never been settled and sorrowful memories: those of a revolutionary commander father who sacrificed everything in the name of the political struggle and those of a son who has grown up with the phantom of a desaparecida mother.
