This is the story of a mother and daughter who cross Chile in search of a relative they both don't know. The mother hopes to find her sister while the daughter expects to find her real father. Along a 2000 km road, they will be forced to confront their childhood expectations with a present which may prove to be even more uncertain and hostile than the fantasies involved in building their identities.
Daughter is a journey where lies become reality and where the reality takes the shape of a film: that of a documentary road movie based on imaginary facts.
