Director Andrés Kaiser combines hundreds of amateur films and photographs from the treasure trove of images belonging to his migrant grandparents creating a cinematic firework of analogies.

Years after the death of my grandmother Anita, I inspected the old building where she and my grandfather Arnoldo worked all their lives as printers among offset machines, accounting notebooks and paper envelopes smelling of mothballs, i found thousands of photographs and hundreds of home movies. This vast collection of images not only revealed their secret profession as amateur filmmakers, but also related a painful line of family tragedies that marked the destiny of their existence.
