A starting point for the shocking self-documentary by Olga Lucovnicova is her homecoming to Moldova. The house is filled with memories, yet everyone around her seems to idealise the past which hides a trauma. The director does not point the lens of the camera at herself but uses it to observe her family. As she is younger than her relatives, she checks if anyone in her family will have the courage to recall something more than anecdotes and posed photos.
