A film about the farewells we wish for. One day the director and her two sisters receive a letter from their father, writing he doesn’t want to see them for 6 months. That letter is now 12 years ago, and their father has since refused to either come back or say goodbye. In this short film full of miniature people, the director plays out all the goodbyes that she is left with.
