Director statement

“‘And ever since she let go of the past, she found her life was beginning.’ (from the film Orlando). This defines the spirit of the film, filmed over 12 years, originally aimed to relate the living conditions of individuals in countries where political and religion issues made living difficult. However it became the story of an inner struggle. A journey through life and around the world to find peace and salvation. ‘To die and be reborn’ if that is what it takes, being true to oneself.”
