Matrioskas. Las niñas de la guerra

Synopsis:

Teresa, Alicia, Araceli, and Julia are four apparently ordinary old women in their nineties who hide extraordinary lives marked by rootlessness and exile: from Spain to Russia and then to Cuba. Self-made women and heroines of their own trajectory. Their memories of hunger, cold and war intermingle with nostalgia for a home that took them in and no longer exists, with the remoteness of a territory they barely know and, for some, with the return to a country that is not the one they dreamed of.
