Israel 2018, 72 min, Hebrew and Georgian, Hebrew & English subtitles
The more Jane was forced to fit within her strict patriarchal Georgian community, the more she resisted. Refusing to marry, she joined the army, studied film, fell in love and at the age of 38 decided to have a baby. After years of running away from her past, and just before motherhood, Jane returns to her roots. Equipped with a camera, she finds the confidence to confront her family and her past for the first time. Using the camera, she tries to break decades of silence in an attempt to better understand her mother and herself in relation to the men in their family, and maybe even find forgiveness.
