I miss hugs


I miss hugs is the story of a single mum and her only daughter, who has migrated to Scotland. As she's settling into a weathered Glaswegian apartment, Anna reminisces about a childhood memory when, as a little girl, she used to hug her mum till she fell asleep.

Back then, her mother taught her how to hug a pillow every night hoping that she will overcome her fears and be independent one day. When Anna moves far away, mother and daughter start to feel the distance in between them and long to hug each other again.
