David attends a family meeting. His brother, Miguel, needs someone to take care of his daughter Miriam for a few days. During the lunch, David remembers a terrible moment that happened years ago in a swimming pool.
Aline with Valentín. Miroslava with Sergio. Two couples. Two different worlds. One only destiny. Reflected upon one another, their lives intertwine in everyday's story. A story full of conflict and passion, triumph and failure.
There isn't such a thing as a normal life after a catastrophe. "Cicatrices" (Scars) is a documentary about the victims of Nogales nuclear accident. Their pain and their endurance. A collection of portraits about dignity and survival.
This Mexican movie is very realistic, I thought it goes so deep into the marriage problems, how the couple deal with really bad problems. I watched and I remember I stopped eating because some parts are really strong, I felt so bad when I watch some scenes. I think, and like I said, I heard that in Mexico just like in many countries it is very common to see marriage problems, especially for violence, it was all about respect, that was the key why these two persons hurt each other so much, and they had to have a bigger problems or really bad thing happened to them to can realize they had to try harder to be good with themselves and to each other, I think this movie is pretty hard core, not for kids definitely. Watching it you can see what is wrong and what is worst.
