When she one night finds the diaries of her late father from the time of her own childhood, she decides to try to overcome the absence of closeness by reading them and by visiting the places she used to know as a child. She tries to uncover the whole painful family history despite her mother’s strong disapproval in order to reconcile with her own past and to move towards the future.
