Augusto and Paulina have been together and in love for 25 years. Eight years earlier, Augusto was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, and his wife has since become his caretaker. 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 to the same challenge in his own life, trying to hold on to his identity with the help of his beloved partner. Day by day, the couple face this challenge head-on, adapting to the disruptions brought on by a taxing disease while relying on their shared affection and sense of humor that remains intact.

85 minutes; Spanish with English subtitles
