We sail through the seas of memory and absence to tell the story of Emilia and Yeyé, two of the 49 children who lost their lives at the ABC day care in a fire that could have been avoided, revealing the terrible consequences of corruption in the public day care system in Mexico. The Naptime is a visual tribute to these children and to their courageous parents as they struggle to start life anew.
