“The world is this house” says Clara while she pretends to protect her beloved ones from the outside world that makes her feel threatened. Clara trenches with her father and Flor, her daughter, in a dark apartment that without remedy collapses upon them. The rooftop becomes her last chink of freedom. A bird in a cage is the only witness of Clara’s fear and resistance against those who try to destroy her.
