Somos nuestra memoria, afirmaba Jorge Luis Borges. ¿Qué pasaría si cada uno de nuestros recuerdos comenzara a desaparecer? ¿Acaso también nos diluiríamos como sujetos?Victoria Dana nos muestra los devastadores efectos del síndrome de Pick, una enfermedad neurodegenerativa, no sólo en quien la padece, sino en todos aquellos que lo rodean. Las palabras perdidas explora esta situación a través de Blanca Hernández, una exitosa abogada y ama de casa que es diagnosticada con esta enfermedad. Para enfrentar la terrible realidad decide recurrir al diccionario como único método para aferrarse al lenguaje y la comprensión de un mundo que se le desvanece poco a poco.ENGLISH DESCRIPTIONWe are our memory, stated Jorge Luis Borges.
