Daughters

Martha and Betty have known each other for twenty years and they have decided to break through. Their goal is in front of them, with disaster looming from behind. What the two best friends also share are problems with their fathers that have been smoldering for ages; unresolved relationships that hang over them like storm clouds; filled to the brim with reproaches, fears and unspoken hurts. Wasted debates on a dead track – with no chance of clarification or reconciliation. But while Martha realizes that her father has only faked his death wish in order to see the great love of his life again on Lake Maggiore, Betty mourns her stepfather Ernesto, who supposedly died years ago.

What began as a day trip to Switzerland turns this way into a road trip through half of Europe. For the twisted roads of life are peppered with potholes, detours and forks. Not only Martha’s father pursues his own agenda, but during the journey after her father’s footsteps Betty also discovers the startling truth that death is not always the end…
