A brave and personal account
22 June 2019 | by neavesclaireSee all my reviews

A deeply personal account that will resonate with a wide audience, Iain's open approach to finding out what happened to his mum touches on issues that will be familiar to so many families. In getting to know the woman who died in his early childhood, his beautifully choreographed film explores how we relate to each other, inter-generational issues, love, loss and family secrets.
