Talea

Talea

Summertime. Everybody is excited to go on vacation to Italy. Everybody but Jasmin. The fourteen-year-old longs to be near her biological mother, Eva. After a long period of separation, a trip to the countryside together becomes a first test for the fledgling mother-daughter relationship. They smoke, dance and stroll together – the mood is promising. Yet as time passes, again, it is revealed that their needs and expectations are light years apart. For the moment, neither Eva nor Jasmin seem up to the task of fulfilling each other's quest for identity and support.
