Filmmaker Nadia Shihab returns to Lubbock, Texas to craft a gently lyrical portrait of her artist mother while visiting her creative haven, Jaddoland. When her grandfather, an Iraqi refugee, arrives for a visit, the films shifts into a mesmeric, intergenerational study that defty contemplates notions of creativity, identity, and home with an eye for serene beauty and visual poetics. This shimmering self-reflective documentary debut ushers in a new, vital take on the immigrant narrative.
