Well-intentioned but misguided filmmaker Ruby White leaves her husband and son in Toronto and embarks on a European film festival tour with her eighteen-year-old daughter, Sara, tagging along as her assistant. Ruby over-shares, doesn't listen and is a bundle of insecurities, inevitably pushing Sara (and the world) away. When criticism from an audience member at a UK screening triggers Ruby to question herself, the mother-daughter relationship melts down. Ruby travels to the next screening in Berlin alone, while Sara visits her cousin in Paris. The malaise and loneliness of being on their own forces both women to confront secrets they have withheld from their loved ones, and make a bold decision before they return home.

If you like Woody Allen movies, you'll love this!

"I'm a good person/I'm a bad person" is currently playing exclusively at select festivals and is Ingrid Veninger at her comedic finest. A delightful comedy (and commentary) on the angst all mothers and daughters face about the difficulties involved when relationship roles are stretched, tested, and re-defined. A must see for anyone who has ever been embarrassed by their mother while traveling or otherwise. A poignant and honest account that speaks to the reality of a stale marriage and how it is compromised when children are involved. Funny, delightful, and intriguing; Veninger is burgeoning in her role as a Canadian on-screen satirical genius.
