One picture. That’s the only thing the filmmaker brought with her, along with her luggage, on a trip to Russia. She took the picture of her 83-year-old grandmother, Bertha, taken on Mother’s Day. She was smiling without being aware of the camera. She doesn’t even know where Russia is on the map, but being far from Colombia, the filmmaker writes her a letter from the other side of the world.
