Through a letter, a son narrates the disappearance of his mother on the night of October 2, 1968, as well as the search that his father undertook until death without finding it. This essay made from a large number of photographs, is an evocation not only to the disappeared of 1968, but also to the disappearances of our days. In a country where people must learn to live under the weight of the fallen.
