Françoise Crémont, known to her family as Frankie, is a well-known French art-house movie star. Struggling with terminal illness and her own mortality, Frankie decides to invite her extended family on a vacation to Sintra, a picturesque village in the mountains of Portugal. Frankie remains at the center of the narrative, while the various stories of her family revolve around her on several different orbits. Although the entirety of the film occurs over just one day, the complexities of the family’s dynamics are quickly made known and deeply explored. Introduction by Iana Dontcheva (VAFF)
