It is a story about re-awakening, a journey from fear to freedom. Fausta suffers from “the milk of sorrow”, an illness transmitted through mother’s milk by women who have been violated during the war of terrorism in Peru. The war has ended, but Fausta lives to remember it because “the illness of fear” stole her soul. Now, her mother’s sudden death forces her to confront her fears and the secret hidden inside of her: she uses a potato to serve as a protective shield.
