Return to the light

The film tells the story of the life of a girl named Sandra, who lives with joy and gratitude for everything that life has given her.
Sandra likes to record her diaries on a voice recorder, sharing her memories, dreams, and feelings. Sandra feels extremely happy about having a family that loves her and supports her at every step and about marrying the lover whom her heart chose, who appreciates and respects her. Sandra is eagerly awaiting the arrival of her first child, who she believes will increase her happiness and safety. But Sandra did not know that there was something dark hiding in the corners of her soul, something that would change her life into hell, something called postpartum depression.
