Sofia, Hedvig and Maja grew up together on the Swedish countryside with their mom Carolina – a radiant personality and a devoted mother. In 2010 Carolina took her own life. That day, Hedvig turned 10 years old. Maja found Carolina first. Sofia only remembers that everyone kept her from looking through the windows. Left behind were three girls - 8, 10 and 16 years old. Today, they are young adults. They have moved on with their lives, but all have struggled in their own ways to cope with their loss.
Now, as they step into adult life, they feel the need to talk more openly about their mother’s death. In Daughters, we meet the sisters as children and in their early adult years, as they reflect on what it is like to come of age in the aftermath of trauma. With the rare circumstance of having filmed material from both the characters’ childhood and the present day, DAUGHTERS offers a unique perspective to grief and loss - and, most importantly, hope to those in a similar situation.
