It’s summertime in Buenos Aires, and Marcela’s sister has suddenly passed away. As Marcela grieves, she must also face the painful process of purging her sister’s apartment of possessions, photographs, and family heirlooms. When Nacho, a young friend of her daughter’s, offers to help her, she finds unexpected comfort. Their relationship deepens into something more romantic as they go on road trips and adventures together. During these difficult and confusing days, Marcela’s past and present become intertwined and she begins to question her sense of self, as the imminence of everyday life pushes in.
"A Family Submerged is a perceptive film, of atmospheres, ruptures, a tour de force by the mind of a woman who has lost all notion of the earthly reality." —EscribiendoCine
