A girl fascinated by her deceased grandfather’s life finds in her childhood house a bunch of letters that he used to confiscate while he was serving in the army. Letters that soldiers and prisoners wrote to their relatives, friends, lovers... and that never reached their destination. She also finds the notebook of her grandmother, where she used to write the life stories of women who pretended to be men in order to do everything that was forbidden for them back then. Thus, following the traces of ink and old paper she will embark on a journey through generations, going through the horrors of the Chilean dictatorship but also finding hope in the stories of those women who had the courage to challenge their destiny and their time.
