  • 15min

Abigail battles moving her elderly mother with dementia out of the family home. When her mother unconsciously haunts her by continually questioning someone called Desmond’s whereabouts, it forces her to finally face the question. The mother can’t remember; the daughter can’t forget… A surprisingly cathartic piece of cinema, directed by multi-award winning South African director and writer Mmabatho Montsho, and written by award-winning screenwriter Lindiwe Suttle Müller-Westernhagen.
