Part of the Documentaries Strand


This is the story of Val and Clare: a mother and daughter. After the tragic death of her eldest child, Val left her family behind and escaped into the Colombian jungle. Thirty years later, when Clare becomes pregnant, she decides to confront her mother, heal the wounds of the past, and try to define motherhood on her own terms. Together they go on an intimate journey exploring the boundaries between responsibility and freedom, with all the guilt and sacrifice they entail.
