Roberto left Mexico when he was 17. Now he comes back with his 4 year old daughter. Growing up in Mexico City, Roberto had seen haunting photographs at his grandmothers house: children, who’s faces had been erased, cut out, taped over – images about which no-one will speak openly. They are simply referred to as "the erased ones" and Roberto has only heard their real names mentioned in hushed conversation – and never in front of his grandmother.
Nobody in the family dares to talk to his grandmother about these pictures. But Roberto always had a special relationship with her and if there ever was a perfect occasion to raise the forbidden subject – it would be her 90th birthday party, when his entire family will be assembled. Not wanting his daughter to grow up in a family full of secrets he decides to confront his family over their dark and secret story.
