Going in-depth into her father’s photo archive and diaries about his experience during the military service in the Spanish Sahara in 1964, Pilar Monsell spots the lost paradise where he always would try to come back. In the eighties and nineties, after the failure of his family project, Manuel Monsell will start traveling to the Maghreb. Again with his photo camera, he will run after the beauty of some portraits which could move him to the place of his dreams. But all these trips reveal much more about the place of departure than about the place of destination. Romantic love, independence and family compose the stage of a refuge that itself gets broken, it commits ourselves to ask not only about our more sincere desires but also about the need to rethink the sense of these old words.
