Film Story

Between 2010 and 2013, two of the most important psychiatric hospitals in Mexico closed. In both, Liliana was admitted during her crisis, caused by her Borderline Personality Disorder.

When Liliana was 3 years old, she suffered a viral encephalitis. Almost 15 years later, she discovered that something wasn’t right in her head. She, along with her family, devoted themselves to ending the causes of her emotional instability and frequent hospitalizations due to suicidal attempts. Facing the threat of another relapse and without the option of psychiatric help, she and her parents must face another new treatment scheme from home.
