A love poem to mothers, life, nature and everything that makes a human being a human being. The contemplation of life and roots by a sensitive female director through enchanting film language and soulful narration. Loaded with deep humanity, unable to not touch any viewer coming from or going to any place.

The film opens several generation’s life philosophy and sense of the world, which are inevitably utterly intertwined. We are a symbiosis of the thoughts and acts of people who have taught and moved us in life. Even after death, such people remain in our life – not just as memories, but as a real part of us, driving branches through our cells, bones and soul. This film has succeeded in capturing that ethereal sense of life and bring it to the viewers in a very original way by using extremely creative cinematographic tools.
