Promising Moon

OT: Das Blaue vom Himmel | Co-Production | Feature Film | 2011

Throughout her life Marga has shown little feeling for her daughter Sofia. But now she reveals fear, wounds and a deep longing for her long-deceased husband Juris. She becomes increasingly lost in her forgetfulness and suddenly demands, like a child, gentleness. It’s an uncomfortable situation for Sofia who must now take care of her mother. Sofia’s growing realization that Marga’s past also affects her own gives Sofia impetus to make a sudden journey with her mother to their old Hometown, Riga. This is where Marga grew up and where she married Juris.But the more Sofia learns about her mothers, the less clear it becomes who she herself is.
