A story of identity -- lost and found
12 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

An adopted middle-aged woman, Shannon, gathers her splintered family together in a country retreat three days in August in an attempt to discover who she really is. Actress Mollie Milligan beautifully portrays this lost and lonely soul who believes that painting a family portrait will somehow answer the question that has tormented her all her life. Her adoptive mother, played by veteran Mariette Hartley, gives her love and solace, but Shannon needs something more, something she can get only from her birth mother Maggie (Meg Foster).

A beautiful film. A healing landscape. A loving resolution.
