With this collaboration we chart a course all along the map of the Americas as well as through the contemporary documentary scene.

"Connatural apprehends time mysteriously, because what it sculpts are shadows. It is a film that illuminates the coexistence with death silently and imperturbably from its grays." - John Campos Gómez

An elderly woman lives her last years of life at home in the care of her daughters. In this enviroment of serenity in which they lead their daily lifes, an awareness of death is emerging. Silence and loneliness creates an atmosphere where hope and faith seek shelter so as not to become extinct.
