Movie Info

On his 30th birthday, Tom Fassaert receives a mysterious invitation from his 95-year-old grandmother Marianne. out of the blue she asks him to come to South Africa to help her with her will. At that time the only thing he knows about her are the myths and predominantly negative stories his father told him. She was a femme fatale who went through countless men, a famous model in the 1950s who put her two sons into a children's home. And a mother who suddenly decided to emigrate to South Africa, far away from the rest of her family. Fassaert decides to accept her invitation, but not without bringing his camera along. Through his lens we discover what lies behind persistent myths and why she still has such a huge influence on the family. But when he himself becomes the object of her obsession, his venture becomes much more complicated than he could ever have imagined.
