Home is full of surprises.
THE VISIT - STORY
A daughter uncovers an incredible secret about her mother during a weekend visit.
The Visit is a short film that explores a mother-daughter relationship from the vantage of maturity and passed time. As we begin to see our mothers more like we see ourselves, the tension that so often belies the bond softens with grace, humor and forgiveness.
