Reality shaped his art. His art shaped my reality
In this moving and intimate portrait of the artist Alberto Manrique, Dácil, his granddaughter, goes back home to the place where she was brought up, in order to restore her grandfather’s memory, part of which he lost some years before.
On this exploratory journey into the past, Dácil will come across memories which are joyful and also painful, through old Super 8 footage, the diaries kept by both her grandparents, and in conversations with them too. But most of all perhaps, Dácil will discover a reality full of magic and that her grandfather’s art contains a special power: the power to heal.
