With her family members as witnesses, Catalina Villar draws the portrait of her grandmother, Ana Rosa, whose story of suffering was covered in silence for decades. The film becomes a research about the abusive use of lobotomies on women in Colombia in the 50s. Lobotomy, a cruel method, was used mainly by men to deprive women of their self-confidence and to better integrate them into patriarchal structures as a result. Obedient. Submissive. Domestic. A journey into a society in a time when feminism was not even a foreign word.
