About this submission

Drawing from the poignant true story of my grandmother, this film delves deeper into this heart-wrenching narrative. The loss of a parent to the ravages of war and persecution seeds a legacy of generational trauma. My daughter, bearing my grandmother's name and serving as the subject of this film, embodies a living connection to our past. Wrapped in irony, her very existence hinges on the twists of fate — had her father not perished, she might never have fled to America, where destiny led her to meet my grandfather, weaving the next chapter of our family's story.
