An intimate portrait of the work and process of director Nadia Shihab's visual artist mother, Lahib Jaddo, this film offers viewers a fresh look at the immigrant story in America. Through an exploration of her mother’s art and connections to her life in Texas, Shihab also drafts a unique picture of how art can help both the creator and the audience make sense of familial and cultural connections, loss, perseverance and life.
