Violeta, Inés and Luisa are women of different ages, whose days pass in apparent calmness on the other side of the window. Wheatfields, mountains, and the streets of an old city provide settings in which Chrysalis recreates these women's lives, as seen through the light and the beauty of memories. The film gives us the magical past when it was still possible for a young girl to dream in the woods; it gives us the distant gaze of a mother in the arid desert and the autumnal memory of a mature woman in a closed house. It tells the tale of women who seem to live in silence, but who have memories that keep secrets, passions, and dreams alive.
