Ever since her husband and son were dragged out of the car and kidnapped by strangers four years ago, Lulu has drifted through her life in Mexico like a ghost. Though there is no trace of them she can’t stop searching. When is the right time to bury one’s hopes? Tatiana Huezo visually translates Lulu’s story into a reality that has cracked and shows the invisible: the feeling of absence – but also a path back to life.
