Synopsis:
The filmmaker's mother recalls her own mother and childhood in the 1960s bouncing between Mexico and California. Her mother's small red vanity case becomes a symbol of her independence as a woman and also of her inaccessibility as a maternal figure. Set against a tableau of shots in present day Mexico City, the film becomes an intimate intergenerational portrait about growing up with an unconventional single mother.
