The filmmaker makes frequent visits to her old mother who lives far away. The visits are trying. Invaded by the past she loses her creativity and sinks into lethargy. Why mother and daughter couldn’t they build a bond of trust? How was the life of her female ancestors? The filmmaker decides to tell this period starting with the family photos, and the videos and artistic photos made during this period. She sees her mother in a last encounter.
Directed by Barbara Erni (Switzerland)
