After winning consecutive Academy Awards for directing in 2015 and 2016, Alejandro G. Iñárritu returns with an experiential portrait of a director who – much like himself – returns to his homeland.

After being named the recipient of a prestigious international award, Silverio (Daniel Giménez Cacho), a renowned Mexican journalist and documentary filmmaker living in Los Angeles, feels compelled to return to his native country, unaware that this simple trip will push him to an existential limit. The folly of his memories and fears have decided to pierce through to the present, filling his everyday life with a sense of bewilderment and wonder.

With both emotion and abundant laughter, Silverio grapples with universal yet intimate questions about identity, success, mortality, the history of Mexico, and the deeply emotional familial bonds he shares with his wife and children – and what it means to be human in these very peculiar times.
