Guilt is a story about the difficult relationship of a mother and daughter. A childhood full of love is confronted with a parent’s depression. Although on a daily basis she is a loving mother, alcohol turns her into a wolf. During her transformation, she becomes unpredictable, losing her humanity. Full of metaphors and sensitivity, the story leads us through the child’s difficult experiences. Scene by scene it shows how an intimate bond is built only to be shattered, hurting everyone. The titular guilt hovers above: who is responsible, who takes the guilt over, can it help anyone? Guilt is about the attempt to take on an intolerable burden, and is a sensitive, raw depiction of the fragility of family life. It is a bittersweet story of two lost women who try to win against the demons of everyday existence.
