Why didn’t you stay for me?
Milou Gevers • Netherlands • 2020 • 25 min
Rebekka, Stef, Hesel and Annabel share the same heart-breaking story: their fathers left them, choosing to commit suicide.
After a personal trauma, the director interviews kids aged 10 to 13 whose parents committed suicide. The questions are direct and honest, while this courageous film tries to approach this difficult topic with sensibility: how do the children understand their fathers’ ultimate choice and how can they cope?
