Writer-director Signe Baumane has achieved a high-water mark in animated storytelling with this autobiographical portrait of stunning depth and honesty.
Baumane employs the imaginative and unflinching in equal measure as she seamlessly merges the stories of herself and her family with a mini-history of 20th century Latvia. Family dynamics and the factors that influence them are explored and intertwine with a refreshing representation of mental illness.
