Absences. A family and the void

Lulú wakes up amidst the silence of a house that has been emptied. Five years ago her eight-year-old son, Brandon, and her husband disappeared.

The absence they left behind now makes her live in a limbo that is also inhabited by desire, hope and the fight to find them alive.
