One night, when director María Fernanda Restrepo was 10 years old, her two brothers disappeared. They were detained by the police, but it is not known what happened next. The police allegedly tortured and murdered them, dumping their bodies into Yambo Lake. Years later, the filmmaker has turned her trauma into a deeply personal documentary, conceived as a search both for her missing siblings as well as for the traces that the tragedy has left on her own life.
