A documentary in which the filmmaker recalls childhood memories, accompanied by imagery from present-day Santiago and Kingston Ontario. The memories are sinister and morbid, of nightmares and suicide and dentists; the footage we see of snowy streets and a child playing and the seaside become foreboding. We learn how Francisca Duran escaped from Chile as a six-year old at the time of the bloody 1973 coup and how the death of democracy led to the death of innocence and truth.
