Production Report featured in
German Films Quarterly 03/2020

The friends Betty and Martha set out on a trip to Switzerland, with a dying father on the backseat, who seems to have only one wish: assisted suicide in a swiss special institute. It´s going to be one last, final ride, but nothing ends, as you had imagined, certainly not life.

With a sense of self-defense and a veracity that hurts, “Daughters” tells of women in the middle of their lives, of farewells that no one is spared of and fathers who disappear too soon. A twisted journey into the south, through Switzerland, Italy to Greece, deeper and deeper into the abysses of their own history. And the question is not where we come from, but: how will we find a way out.
