Romania, 74 min


A common passion and a debilitating mental disorder bring a daughter and her father together and apart, in front of the camera. While their relationship unfolds, a more complex discussion and social dynamics take shape, touching upon the inability to communicate, transmission of trauma through generations, education and personal development, stigma of mental illness. A series of dialogues alternate with daily life sequences, brought to us either from present reality footage or from the father’s VHS archives.
