Filmmaker in person!

Bernadette, a single mother in Paris, tries to provide her daughters with everything.  She is thrilled when her eldest daughter, Elza, is the first in the family to graduate from college earning a master’s degree summa cum laude. But Elza breaks her mother’s heart by running away to their native Guadeloupe in search of a distant childhood memory: the father she barely remembers.
