This short film is part of the Persister Shorts Program.

Eight far-flung siblings gather for a family reunion on the island of Falster in Denmark. There they combine the feasts and games of their Danish upbringing with the prayer and song of their Ugandan homeland, in an effort to better understand their parentage and the pain that marks their past. Angie Driscoll
