Fragments of Lucy is a thriller about a woman who suffers from Bipolar Disorder and looks in Valparaíso for her mother whom she has never met after receiving a six-month-old letter from her. Once she arrives at the alleged meeting point, she finds no trace of her mother and during a harassment attempt by two drunk young men in a public bus, she loses all her belongings, among them, her Bipolarity pills, which soon cause her strong mood swings. At the same time, throughout her search around the city, facing several obstacles and a violent family past, she meets different kinds of people who help her reconstruct her own story and identity.

Current Project Status 

This project is in a very advanced stage, most actors have already been working for several months and preparing themselves for the shooting, and also a small crew of very talented and passionate people has been put together. The project has participated in workshops such as the VI Bolivia Lab and the II Santiago Lab.

Project Origin

This project was born from very personal experiences that were later taken into a field of research and interviews focused mainly on the intimacy of the feminine world where fiction began to mix up with reality and each character was filled with stories, wounds and dreams that in a world that moves so fast seem almost invisible. The main objective is to capture those moments and that sensibility, strength and essence of each woman—from twenty to eighty years old and different socioeconomic backgrounds—and their lives in Valparaíso with all its cultural and historical richness.
