Synopsis

Filmmaker and actress Sarah Polley explores the nature of memory and storytelling while making a documentary on her own family. Focused on her late mother Diane's infidelities, we observe the intimate relationship politics of the Polley family. What comes to the fore is the imperfect marriage of Polley's parents which leads to questions about her paternity and questions about her place within the family clan.
