Director Renée Wilna Span realises she has passed the birth-giving age. This lends the absence of her biological father added significance. A penetrating cinematic search for her real father, and for the characteristics she carries inside but will not pass on, follows. The film works like a composition in which conversations, archives, animation and observations add up to a personal contemplation about family karma and happiness. The truth is harsh, but also brings unexpected beauty.
