the roots
25 November 2019 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

The return to the birthday of her grandma of a young woman. An innocent revelation, with a terrible impact. The shock and brutal reaction of family. And the words giving expected, desired peace. Short, a wise short drama about roots. Different realities. And the need to be excepted as normal fruit of old memories.
