In Detail

As one of Chile's most prominent cultural commentators and television presenters, Augusto is no stranger to building an archive of memory, having been responsible for that herculean task following the Pinochet dictatorship and its systematic erasure of collective consciousness.

Now he turns that work to his own life, trying to hold on to his identity with the help of his beloved. Since Augusto’s diagnosis his wife has since become his caretaker. Day by day, the couple face this challenge head-on, adapting to the disruptions brought on by the taxing disease while relying on the tender affection and sense of humour shared between them that remains intact. One of the most heartfelt renditions of life, love, and memory in recent years of cinema.
