What begins as a personal film about chronic illness and motherhood becomes a journey of environmental proportions exploring patterns of annihilation and regeneration from the personal to the global. Intimate family stories reflect issues in the zeitgeist: grief, illness, the climate crisis, metaphysical journeys, and redefining ourselves in a time of global challenges. The rich visual world of the film mirrors the story with 60 years of family footage, verité scenes, and handmade animation.
