The Dependants

by Helena von Zweigbergk

They are two adult women, but they are also mother and daughter. On the surface it looks like everyday encounters and conversations about grandchildren, spouses and life. But underneath strong emotions and painful contradictions are stirring. Emotional memories are portrayed, and coloured by, the two women’s perspectives. A relationship that is as close as it is complex.

Can an adult mother and daughter come as close as in their beginning? What truths have been said that has to be dealt with? Is it possible to overcome the distance that occurs when the child is no longer a child, and when the parent is transformed into a normal human being. Helena von Zweigbergk publishes a story in a new format. A little bit longer than a short story and a little bit shorter than a novel.
