VANCOUVER PREMIERE! FILMMAKER IN ATTENDANCE!
In 1980, at an Alaskan campground, a young mother likely suffering from post-partum psychosis threw her 10-month-old baby into a roaring campfire. Gwendellin Bradshaw sustained 2nd and 3rd-degree burns over most of her body, losing fingers, an ear and half of her scalp. As a young adult Gwendellin sets off to find her estranged mother, beginning what is a five-year journey towards healing and acceptance in this heartrending documentary.
