In Naphtaline, Rocio is a 19-year-old Argentinean girl who has just lost her paternal grandmother. She attends the funeral, with her parents as her only guests. On the way home, she tries to crack a few jokes to lighten the mood, but her mother doesn’t like it. Rocio begins to question herself. She would have thought that this death would have made her sadder. She wonders if it is because she did not consider her grandmother a “good person”. But what is a good person, really? And how did her grandmother come to this? It is 2001, and the economic and political situation in Argentina is complicated. Rocio moves into her late grandmother’s old house. For this new life, she is accompanied by her friend, who helps her in her installation. When they arrive, a cat comes to them: Rocio hates these animals, but she promised to take care of it. The next day, the young woman will find herself alone in this house and she will recall memories. Moments that she lived here with her grandmother, but also the history of her family. She will remember the brief life stories that her grandmother told her and thus reweave her life, the mistakes she may have made, the happiness and tragedy that happened to her. By immersing herself in this past, she will question herself on what she wants for her future, by trying to draw lessons from this family history.
