Diago said of the movie: "It’s the story of my mother who’s been waiting for my father who left 20 years ago. It’s also the story of my sister who’s been waiting for her husband who left five years ago and my niece who has never seen her father". His camera technique captures the inner beauty and strength of the characters.[peacock prose ]
