From a twenty-first floor in tower eight of Lugano 1 and 2 neighborhood, a familiar daily life is revealed. Sol gave birth to Malena at the age of 17 and says that when she was born her hair was so golden that it shone. Salvador was born a year later and she says he came to cure all her ills.
The wind is blowing strong in Lugano and the hum of the racetrack reverberates in the department. A fabric of conversations between friends and family who take care of each other from a distance, sustain daily survival. On the edge of the balcony, Sol rehearses texts, songs and experiences from the past, suspending the present with vertigo and fragility.
