"Mom's stable, asleep. Drive safe! Xoxo Dad." Soon after Elizabeth receives this text message, her mother isn't the only one lost in sleep. Elizabeth's car has broken down. It's freezing cold, no sign of life nearby. She just has to wait, patiently. The recovery guys will be here soon, Elizabeth. Till then, she warms her young hands on the vents, drifts into a strange slumber, followed by an even more surreal awakening. Icelandic landscapes merge with Elizabeth's memories. Fears are magically transformed into comforting and fantastical fabrics. Father, upstairs, alone.
It adds new intellectual and emotional colour to the Miu Miu Women's Tales series: that twilight space between childhood, adulthood and mortality.
"I've always been obsessed with family dynamics. I'm always trying to develop my understanding of that." [So Yong Kim]
