“Son, did you know love? Please, tell me you did... Did you ever fall in love?"

Violence, as spread like a germ within the family core. Three characters open their wounds to talk about the love, hostility and domestic violence surrounding them. 

A son walks through the memories of his growing up, trying to come to terms with his mother and his absent father.

A father addresses to justify the consequences of his actiones, after finding himself alone.

And a mother tells the story about how her troubled son was destined to fail in life, after the shadow of his late brother, who was meant to become everything he couldn't.

“How to heal our memories? How to erase the past?”
