Ana is sometimes short of breath. The reason, according to her mother, is that during her pregnancy there was a time when she could not breathe. It was during the internal armed conflict in Guatemala, on the afternoon of 13 February 1982. On that day, Ana's father, Emil, was arrested and disappeared along with 45,000 other people. Now, in the silence and fear that still lingers in a post-war society, Ana delves into the memories of her relatives and those who knew her father, among the memories they have yet to utter or hide.
