Visual concept: 

Research and memory are the concepts of the film. The characters are itinerant, who searched the places visited by the protagonist, invisible. This path will be filmed with a camera on steady cam and wide dolly. The interviews will be worked in VoiceOver, they evoke memories of a family album, the listening of a jail recording, the reading of a letter. The archives will be independent times. There will fictional scenes to embody Ricardo.
