Synopsis

An orchestra improvises. Its music has the power to evoke stories, to reveal ghosts from the past. The symphony recovers the tales of women who struggle against silence on an ocean without memory. Nine Fugues. Nine stories searching for an exit. The illness of forgetting in an individual and social dimension in a palindromic reality.
