Every Soul of My Body. My Mother’s secret diary during WWII

After the passing of her mother, Lorena finds the diary that she kept all her life. The entries allow her to discover a different woman.

Working as a nurse, her mother was covertly working for the partisans passing them intelligence that she astutely acquired from wounded German soldiers by administering more morphine than usually required to ease the pain.

Like Lorena, director Erika Rossi also lost her mother a few years ago and, like her, she went through the pain that comes from loss and absence.

During the production of the project, they both began to follow the steps subsequent to the loss of such an important person in their lives together.
