Daughter. Wife. Mother. These are labels many women consciously, and unconsciously wear. But when these roles dissolve, who is left? In this short documentary animated by Sarita McNeil, filmmaker Johanna Lunn reaches out to her father to help sort it all out.

The catch?
He’s been dead for 15 years.
