synopsis

What it means to have a proper name? To what extent is ''proper''? Through a simple, symbolic gesture like changing a girl's name (from Carmen to Liberty), we enter into the everyday mechanisms of power and repression that were exercised during a recent period of our history (the Franco Dictatorship) but also in the survival strategies that tried to answer it.
On this journey, and from our hero's perspective, we'll get a glimpse of how there was a society (Republican Spain) were the name Liberty was possible...and years later, impossible. All this will bring us to ask nowadays, are we free?
