A mother wonders if she can get through to her daughter. The daughter tries to imagine how her mother used to see life. How can you capture something like this? An experimental attempt at rapprochement.
"When I see pictures of my mother when she was young, I see a woman who doesn’t need me. When I wasn’t born yet, her art was everything to her. I became important only later. I would have liked to meet her back then. Or would I? She seems so independent. Would she have liked me?" Hesitantly emerging, dreamy images complement the conversation between daughter and mother about the making of the film. "I still don’t know what you’re looking for", the mother says. "The truth?" "No." "That’s good."
