Synopsis

Mythical homecoming transfigures itself into a reevaluation of traditional roles in a family setting, confronted both by truths long left under the rug and, above all, a radical alterity that forces itself even in the closest relationships. Narrated from a first-person documentary perspective, much in vogue these days, the film stands out due to its scope, which seems to expand scene by scene, alternating from a person to a family, to a place, and time. As the themes multiply, the film eludes any self-pity and holds a harsh mirror that equally reflects the viewer. *(E.V)
