Desired Child


Hilarija Locmele


"My sister died several years before I was born. I know her only from old family photos and stories. Nevertheless, she became an intergral part of my life growing up. I fantasized about her a lot and was convinced to be her incarnation. I thought a lot about whether I would meet the same fate as her - death at a young age caused by a brain tumor. The film tells what my sister meant to me, my brothers and my parents."
