Tramway Film Festival


Portugal | 2021 | Fiction | 28’ | Polish premiere

Maria has disappeared. She hadn’t felt at ease for a while and was slowly becoming alienated from her surroundings. Using memories of conversations and gestures, her daughter tries to reconstruct what exactly happened. This exceptional portrait of a mother-daughter relationship is also a reflection on the sense of not being comfortable in your own skin, and being dissatisfied with your role in life.
