Skydiver, runner and climber, Nadia Iris Mercado believes she becomes her true self when she starts running on the road. The fact that she can feel a connection with her ancestors through outdoor sports and experience herself becoming one with the great nature is due to the legacy her mother passed on to her. This film is a homage to her mother who lived life to the fullest as an immigrant and a woman, and an anthem to a history handed down through the maternal line as well as the power of women.
