The Memory of Water - Film Screening
A moment of inattention is all it took to change the lives
of Javier and Amanda forever: lives that are now divided between
"before" and "after", between how everything was and should
have been. All because of an accident that neither of them could have
prevented. It will take a long time to reach closure on the death of their
four-year-old son. Amanda can't bear the daily ache of seeing her home - and
Javier. Everything reminds her of her child, and so she decides to leave her
husband and plunge into her work as an interpreter, while Javier, who continues
to work as an architect, can't accept the separation and seems unable to face
the loss of his son.
