“Memoria” follows Ivan Cohen, an anti-social, self-conscious boy living in the suburbs of Palo Alto, California. Unlike most kids in Palo Alto, Ivan comes from a working class family and is part of a very small subculture of punks and skateboarders. Unable to get along with his mother and his step-father at home, Ivan retreats to a world of military combat in the confines of his bedroom, dreaming of his Russian military father who left him before he was born. A sensitive boy who is hopelessly searching for love, honesty and respect among his disaffected peers, Ivan is in love with a girl named Kelly, who doesn't even know who he is. Ivan is also trying to be accepted by his friend Alex — an angry, careless boy whose drug use and cruel apathy for the feelings and well-being of other people shatter Ivan's innocence and lead him down a path of self destruction.
