After a year without any news, a call from the Prosecutor's Office announces that the complaint of sexual abuse has finally been brought to trial. That winter morning another hard process begins for the protagonist: finding legal representation, understanding the bureaucratic logic of Justice, knitting a tight support network to face the case against her uncle, a powerful town commissioner, and gather enough courage to reopen a file that will lead to the family's past.
Without demagoguery, Belen Lopez Peiro reviews the blurred lines of memories; she rehearses her answers for the humiliating hearings and delves into the labyrinths of jury trials.
