Margarita dives daily into the open river and swims several miles, as if water had healing qualities and helped her close the wounds the death of her daughter and grandson left behind, as if by swimming she was also able to silence the tempest inhabiting her house. Margarita is 82 years old and is training for the swimming World Championship in Japan. I am her granddaughter and, among her fears, desires and poems, I tag along on her journey.
