In the mid 1950’s my grandfather was committed to a psychiatric hospital, my uncle became a political prisoner, and my mother aged 11 was sent to a boarding school. Since then she hardly saw her father and brother. Today my aunt owns the family house where some of the secrets might be kept, but my mother hasn’t gone back since my grandfather died in 1970. In this film I want to unravel the secrets and mysteries of my Portuguese family during dictatorship. The cloud of Salazar’s regime is dissipating, 40 years after the revolution of 1974. Families can now make sense of their past, reinterpret old memories and discover new truths. (Catarina Mourão)
