An experimental short exploring the absences and buried histories that follow the act of leaving home, filtered through the many routes that leaving home takes for a "Canadien" daughter of Yugoslav immigrants: cultural displacement, assimilation, mother/daughter histories, sexuality and memory. Childhood and recent Super 8 footage is intercut to create a repository for family portraits, cultural memories of the balkans, immigration history, and personal reflection.
