A suitcase full of photos, diaries, phonebooks and a tape with Finnish tango sets Swedish filmmaker Frans Huhta off on an odyssey to get to know his deceased mother and come to peace with a heritage in the shadow of a suicide "The sudden loss of someone who was close to you, who was recently tingling with life in every cell, cannot be described in words. And maybe that's why I was compelled to make this film. As if the need to communicate the inexpressible had taken this path, or rather forced its way up to the surface. Silence will never be an option. This film is a bridge, a meeting place, a starting point for a dialog about what must rise to the surface, about what we can't put words on." - Frans Huhta Karlsson
