Phuong rushes home to find her father vanished after another quarrel with her mother. In a desperate attempt to search for him, she seeks help from his mistress. The two women head to the mountain, hoping they could find the man there. But this time, Phuong’s mother also vanishes...

In the final piece of her trilogy about women’s sufferings, Linh Duong sublimates the conflictual relationship between a mother and her daughter into a fantasy tale. Disillusion and anger accompany this bittersweet road trip. Inspired by her own personal stories and emotions, Linh Duong captures shared memories and family secrets with subtlety and a touch of madness.  

Locarno is ...

… the perfect place to ROARRRRRRRRRRR!!!
