Directed by Natalia Luque Barrios

Chile, Spain, United States | 9:50 minutes | 2020

Away from her family, Rocío finds a way to say her last goodbyes to her grandmother, who is about to pass away.

Rocío, a Colombian immigrant living in New York, is forced to work as a cleaner. After a phone call with her family, she learns that her grandmother is severely ill and is about to pass away. While communicating from long distance becomes more difficult, Rocío has no choice but to rely on technology to say farewell to her grandmother.
