“This film is bold and heartbreaking. Motherhood, sisterhood and womanhood are the words that come to mind when I think about the film. It almost feels like the abuse is a backdrop and the relationships between the three generations of woman are trying to exist within it.  Hope’s relationship with her grandmother specifically is emphasized for me. I just love their relationship. It feels like the one real, healthy connection both of them have with anyone.”
