For a year and a half, I filmed moments of my life, divided in this film between my parents’ house and my own. I attempted to stand in the gap between these two worlds, a gap in which my personal conflict takes place; I find myself overcoming and compromising, struggling and giving up. With the help of the camera, I tried to go out on a journey with my father. I don't know how this journey will end since I’m not really sure if it ever began.

Screened in Lethal Lesbian 2019.
