Several women appear in this video doing everyday activities: a woman working, cooking, one with her son, one reading, another with a friend. While they carry out their activities, their faces start to blur, until their whole body is a "blur".

Headlines appear from the press. Headlines which blame the victim, say that she wanted it, in which the perpetrator is protected and validated. Headlines that call femicide a crime of passion and say that women just ‘turn up’ dead. One by one, their faces appear on missing person signs. The video will be projected on the walls of public and busy spaces in Playa del Carmen.

Lorena considers herself a feminist activist through her art. She believes that through art changes can be made. A work of art can impact, awaken emotions and ideas, provoke reflection in the viewer and transform the collective consciousness.
