Lorenza and Mateo feel lost in their own history. He cannot understand why his father, Ramónan Argentine militant in the resistance against Videla’s dictatorshipdecides to disappear without a trace. She cannot find the words to explain to her son why his father suddenly became a threat. In searching for Ramón while reconstructing the fragments that make up their past, these two characters, at times close partners, at times opponents, return to Buenos Aires. Scouring the city, Lorenza talks to Mateo about the life she and Ramón led during the dictatorship. Quieting the pain, fear and loss, the mother tones down the words while her teenage son inquires and questions everything. Both subject to the daily task of discovering, through conversations, how they’ve reached this point of no return where she must write the story and he must find his father. A novel about revelation, about the fall of heroes who inhabit private and public battles, about the relationship between parents and children, and about a love and an unattainable dream that will inevitably meet their end.
