Dear Mother explores the complexities of the maternal relationship between mother and daughter. Between fusion, tensions, proximity and independence, the mother and daughter exchange places throughout their lives. The mother remains the symbol of protection, the key element to her daughter's identity and mainstay of her existence and construction. However, the time comes when the daughter needs to devote herself to her own identity and self-realisation to become an independent individual. This separation tests the maternal bond. Their quarrels are storms and the eternal waves are the unwavering constant link that shall forever keep them inseparable.
