Director Janna Ji Wonders tells the story of her family over four generations from the point of view of women, each defying in their own way the patriarchal structures of their time. It’s about the women’s search for identity, roots and self-fulfillment, it’s about love, pain, longing, loss, psychotic conditions, birth, death – the cycle of life.
