An upside-down world where women are in power and men look after the family. Domenico retells his story to his daughter starting with a tender memory. In a letter he re-lives the joys of her birth, her childhood, the dreams of a happy family, but also of the painful sacrifices of a father.
What would the past have looked like if women ruled the world and the men stayed at home, taking care of the babies? Maria Iovine powerfully reworks archival found footage in this tender yet dystopian epistolary short, which explores ideas of liberation and sacrifice through imagery of the past.
