‘When I was born a part of Jaime passed away’. Filmmaker Agustina Comedi embarks on the reconstruction of her father’s life using his large collection of home videos, more than 100 hours of videotapes and interviews of his friends and her family. Piecing together Jaime’s gay life before the marriage to her mother, Comedi’s poetic documentary takes us on a journey through her father’s youth filled with political activism and joyful friendships at the time of Argentina’s repressive dictatorship in the 1980s and the dawn of the HIV epidemic..
