Several weeks after a devastating hurricane, a young woman, María, returns home to care for her suicidal father. While she waits for him to be discharged from the hospital, she becomes obsessed with cleaning up his withered apartment. Without water, light, or food, she struggles against an uncertainty that consumes her until she finally hears her father’s comforting voice. But when María runs to him, everything changes. Following the aftermath of Hurricane María, this short film shines a light on the mental health deterioration underserved communities, like Puerto Rico, endure after natural disasters.
