Spanning an atemporal, apolitical space of the narrative, Memoria centres on Jessica (Tilda Swinton), a Scottish orchid farmer visiting her sister in Bogotá. One livid morning at daybreak, Jessica is torn from sleep by a loud bang resembling the reverberating sound of a large stone ball falling on metal. This haunting sound dispels her sleep for days, calling her identity into question and guiding her from recording studios to secluded villages. The noise, which only Jessica seems to hear, carries a foreboding beauty that is part of the surrounding landscape — be it the busy streets of Bogotá or the verdant mountains around the excavation site where Jessica travels to meet up with a new friend, Agnes (Balibar), an archaeologist researching human remains that bear the signs of ritual deaths. Here, Jessica also shares memories with Hernan (Diaz), a fish scaler who speaks of the past, the future, and the memories of the dead.
