Set in the 1970’s, the short film centers on two little girls, who struggle with their mother’s bipolar disease that constantly disrupts their lives and burdens them to grow up early.
This semi-autobiographical film tells a story about the relationship between mother and daughters and how who takes care of who can become interchangeable.
We’ve always wanted to make a film that stems from our personal experience of growing up with a bipolar mother. While the details were changed, we were the little girls that sometimes longed for normality and we were afraid of what might await us at home after school. Mental illnesses often stay ignored by society and people who suffer from them are excluded from their community. We believe it is important to raise awareness on the issue, because these illnesses affect more than the sick.
