A family celebration, a family peace, the family lies. The forgotten is brought back by the old photos. The family peace is kept in exchange for the silence. There is an untold secret burning in the family fireplace. We become adults once we come to terms with our family. The main character is a victim of her own weakness. How will she stand up to the conventional communication patterns?
