Bernadette is thrilled when her daughter Elza, the first college graduate in the family, completes her master’s degree. But Elza breaks her mother’s heart by running off to their native Guadeloupe in search of a distant childhood memory: the father she barely remembers. Based on director Mariette Monpierre’s own life experience, this debut feature captures the passion and contradictions of a family in transition.
