Film Introduction
PACO (75) and TRINI (73) have always been together. Due to a diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease, Paco and his children make the difficult decision to put Trini in a nursing home, where he visits her and takes care of her daily. We discover their story through the eyes of their granddaughter Marta, who for 12 years films her grandparents' relationship. What begins as an attempt to capture memory ends up becoming a film about the love of a lifetime.
