Duck Daze


Community outcast Johnina makes a disquieting return to her homeland on the Isle of Lewis, to attend the funeral of her father. When she steps back into her childhood home, Johnina is reunited with her estranged mother, reigniting a tense relationship in which neither woman chooses to speak the other’s language.

As Johnina slides back into her past, a dark and buried trauma begins to resurface, and in order to acknowledge and confront it, Johnina shapes her trauma into the form of a quaking, flapping duck.
