Someone puts a VHS in a videorecorder. As soon as the videotape is played, television images of all kind appear on the screen. The images are blurred: these are Beatrice’s childhood memories. Just like the videotapes are inevitably blurred, so are the memories of her childhood. That’s the beginning of a journey in which the film-maker processes some of the most important moments of her life and the relationship with her mother and her sickness. Thanks to this painful quest, the film- maker reconstructs her most intimate narrative to find what she had lost.
