Vaderland / Homeland

A film by

the Netherlands | 17' | 09/2014 | documentary

Willing or unwilling, a loved one can be lost. And with this loss, all that is attached.
What once was secure gives way to emptiness that cries to be refilled once more.
Through many question and only few answers Homeland shows a search for a sense of security after this suddenly dissolved.
