Eight-year-old Laura gets a letter from her father containing a rabbit story that explains his absence. Based on real interviews, Catalina Vásquez Salazar constructs a disturbing story in which the visual and textual levels are initially far apart. The adolescent daughter approaches reality only through gradually exposed inconsistencies and alarming impressions as she frequently visits her father in jail.

In Bogotá’s noisy and violent big city machine people carry their nature only limply in their hands, surrendering without resistance to disconcerting rituals. The daughter of a bird flees to her father in the province. The initial playful lightness there is soon damped by an indeterminate heaviness. The associative story flows through animated ink drawings, pausing in short dance scenes, sometimes surreal and lyrical, sometimes earthly and direct.
