Audio documentary. During a discussion on trust, three people open up about their vision of mourning, exploring their relationships with places, beliefs and memories. The speakers take part in a liberating discussion that highlights the singularity of their grief and sketches their relationship with their own death. Following her own personal bereavement, Manon Josien, assisted by her co-director Alba De la Rosa, interweaves the stories in this documentary of three of her relatives confronted with disappearance.


Alba De la Rosa and Manon Josien are students of the ENS Louis-Lumière.
