Gilbert, a craftsman, is about to close down his business when he finds letters from his grandmother Amalia, who recounts events that marked her life. As he reads, Gilbert realizes that each story is connected to an object. So he imagines the work that each craftsman does to make or repair these objects. Amalia’s Memories is a journey to the heart of Caribbean tradition, and a plea for the preservation of a wide range of craft heritage.
