C. Scott Willis' documentary focuses on the life and work of photographer Francesca Woodman, who committed suicide in 1981 at the age of 22, with interviews from her parents, both artists as well. The interwoven result is a film which examines parent-child relationships coupled with the pressures of the art world. 

"A movie that burrows into questions about how our talents are molded, how artistic promise can lead to crippling loneliness, and the burden of great expectations." - Chris Cabin,
