Thanks to a humble subtleness, "Home" turns into an essay about memory and HELPS TO reflect on the sense of belonging.

VITOR pINTO

Cineuropa

After having lived in eight countries in the world, Lilia in her mid sixties seems to have settled down in Portugal. She hasn’t been to her native Colombia in 40 years. Josephine, her daughter with the camera, asks her mother if she has found home, turning the film into a universal dialogue about identity, homeland and the sense of belonging.
