Malin Skjöld

The filmmakers mother was a CEO for a brush factory.

Nowadays the daughter spends a lot of time to help her old mother and the idea of making a film about the story grows. But all the details seems to have disappeared and the mother gets more and more demented during the process. Other more existential questions rises.
