The sculptor Sergio Camargo died 19 years ago. If the bones left in the grave are in fact his remains, would his sculptures be living remains? What is ephemeral and what is lasting? Is there a possible eternity? Seen through the eyes of his daughter, Maria, Sergio Camargo is examined both as an artist and a man.
