About a son who, in his father’s folder of negatives, finds love, despair and reconciliation with a painful memory. The father’s suicide and the great emptiness that followed.

A journey among the 3000 negatives that the father left behind him. He was a very good photographer. Among the negatives Eric finds a self portrait, a pictire of the other dad. A man that looks afraid. A man that barely dares to look into the camera. What was it he was was afraid of?
