Filmmaker Mercedes Moncada has a Spanish mother and a Nicaraguan father. She lived 18 years in Nicaragua, and as a child, in 1979, witnessed the triumph of the Sandinista revolution. Now, based in Mexico, Mercedes delves into her memories to make this film with Managua Lake as a metaphor of the Central American country. It is a journey through the transformations that the Sandinista movement has undergone and how its revolutionary ideas have led to contradictory trends. It is a highly personal documentary about leaders that betray the spirit of the revolution that overthrew dictator Somoza.
