Synopsis

After long years of absence, and following her father’s stroke, Eugenia returns to La Quietud, the family estate near Buenos Aires where she is reunited with her mother and sister. The three women are forced to confront the emotional traumas and dark secrets of their shared past, which played out against the backdrop of the military dictatorship.
Long-buried grievances resurface and jealousies are revealed, all amplified by the unsettling physical resemblance between the two sisters.

Director’s Statement

This is an intimate film about the female universe and sisterhood. At the beginning of the story, under the same initial perspective, the main characters Eugenia and Mia are very much alike. The story will then take different directions, following the different paths they choose throughout their lives, as they confront their parents’ disturbing past.
The film takes place in a huge, beautiful country house called La Quietud. An atmosphere filled with memories, a hostile present and secrets that have been buried for years interfere with the scenes and the bonds between the characters.
La Quietud invites viewers to share the peculiarity of the characters, their story and their surroundings, and to submerge into the emotional labyrinths of these desperate and beautiful characters.
