Audrey Benac—the recurring fictional alter ego of filmmaker Sofia Bohdanowicz, played by codirector Deragh Campbell—returns in this by turns wry and reflective investigation into hidden family histories. Here, Audrey is launched on a surprising odyssey when she travels to Harvard’s Houghton Library to read the archived letters that her great-grandmother, Zofia Bohdanowiczowa, exchanged with fellow Polish poet Jozef Wittlin between 1957 and 1964. As she digs into the past, Audrey encounters resistance both institutional and familial while grappling with her own precarious present reality.
