In this film essay, the film maker recalls the memories of her childhood, about the conversations between her father and his camarades who had tried to make changes in Ecuador by means of a revolution during the neoliberal regime in the 80s and 90s. Through interviews with her father and his old camarades, the political situation of that time is told. How and why did they prepare themselves for a revolution?
While the story of the attempt to a revolution is being told, a voice-over explains why and how the filmmaker makes her movie. The process of making the movie develops as the making of a revolution progress.
