Abstract

A woman comes across a house that resembles that of her Argentinian grandparents. As she walks through the house, she reflects on her childhood after immigrating to the U.S. to meet her American father’s family. She attempts to make sense of her fragmented memories, to make sense of herself and her equally fragmented cultural identity. Although the encounter with the house seems random, the further in she walks, the more she starts to unravel questions she’s carried with her entire life.
