Mémoires vives

Mémoires vives is a story of families affected, intimately or distantly, by disappearance. Laurie’s return after 30 years of captivity is a source of joy to all those around her, but it inevitably stirs up painful memories and ghosts from the past. Other disappearances, including those of a mother, a lover, and a life’s passion, also become sources of pain and wrenching re-examination. Fortunately, these characters, in their unceasing and inspiring quest for truth, will come to find unexpected happiness.
