When the author of the film visits his Mormon family in Michigan it has been exactly three years since a great tragedy – his niece’s death. The girl’s mother and her partner were charged with negligence which might have caused her death. This return also has a concealed aim – Angelo would like to find out how his family members, in particular his parents, understand his transgender identity. A home-based on very traditional values hides many sinister secrets, such as drug addiction and violence. Will the camera become a family psychotherapist? The film received the Jury Special Mention at the 61st Krakow Film Festival: "A multilayered, innovative film about family secrets and the unravelling of history. By confronting the complexity of his experiences, the filmmaker finds catharsis."
