Now in its final week, don't miss your chance to see this true story of one family’s determination to find a place to call home. From the director of the 2018 hit show, Misty.

Florencia has an old box full of cassette tapes from her family home in Chile.  As she starts listening to them in her room in London, she travels back in time and space, to when her family fled Argentina’s dictatorship and started recording audio letters to stay in touch with their loved ones.

Spanning four decades, Florencia Cordeu and director Omar Elerian (Misty, Going Through, NASSIM, One Cold Dark Night, Islands) create a moving and uplifting audio-visual experience that asks what it means to remember: as an individual, as a family, and as a country.

Running Time: 80 mins
Age Guidance: 12+
