A personal documentary on a young Greek filmmaker's quest of exploring his own identity by discovering his estranged Lebanese and Palestinian heritage from his mother’s side. 


The film explores through observational filmmaking, archive footage and constructed sequences the complexity of heritage when it’s connected with intergenerational trauma and themes of immigration. Political unrest and family history intersect with the personal story of connection between mother and son.
