Surrounded by sounds that come out of a jungle-like garden, a woman inhabits the gloom of her bedroom, covering her body in roots. Her name is Celsa, she is 70 years-old and lives immersed in her garden's vegetation, seeking remedies that will soothe her pain, the oblivion, and her recent past. A past stained by the confinement and torture she endured 45 years ago during the military dictatorship in Paraguay.
From the intimacy of her plants and treasured files, Celsa keeps a wish alive: to heal her memories and get stronger while living in a present where the dictatorship's echoes reverberate and threaten to reinstate fear.
