A Perfect Housewife

A Perfect Housewife

The more that she was forced to fit within her strict patriarchal Georgian community, the more Jane resisted. Refusing to marry, she joined the army, studied film, fell in love and at the age of 38 decided to have a baby. After years of running away from her past, and a moment before motherhood, Jane returns to her roots. Equipped with a camera, she finds the confidence to confront her family and her past for the first time. Using the camera, she tries to break decades of silence in an attempt to better understand her mother and herself in relation to the men in their family, and maybe even find forgiveness as well.
