JACKIE

Film stills

Negali ilgėtis savo mamos, jei jos niekada nepažinojai.

Sofie and Daan are fraternal twins, but that is all they have in common - except for their two fathers, who raised them. One day, their biological mother Jackie calls from a hospital in the U.S. with a complicated fractured leg needing their help. The sisters travel to the U.S. and are disappointed by reality: Jackie is a stern woman who doesn’t seem to have any interest in her daughters. Nevertheless, they embark on a trip across the desert of New Mexico to get Jackie to the rehabilitation centre. On the road in Jackie’s old and shabby RV, this becomes an adventurous and life-changing journey filled with confrontations, challenges and surprises.
