Twelve years ago Ricardo, Natalia’s father, was diagnosed with Parkinson’s. Then, she told him and her mother that she liked women. Natalia could not understand why, if her parents had been leftist militants and fought for equality and freedom, they could not accept her. A decade later, they meet to talk about their views on family, homosexuality, ideological struggles and what the progress of Ricardo’s disease has meant for them.
