A teacher survives a school shooting and returns to her remote childhood home to care for her mother, Vera. As her mother's dementia deepens and secrets come tumbling out, she discovers her entire life is a lie. Amber has recovered from her bullet wounds, but even three years later has yet to recover from the killing of her beloved husband David that day. Amber remains haunted by the moments before the tragedy, and Vera lives haunted by every moment after her own secret tragedy decades before. Ghosts roam the house quietly, and melancholy stillness engulfs each woman in echoes of men they've lost or been scarred by. Ultimately a story of acceptance and redemption, The Other One is a beautiful and serene film haunted like each of us is by the pasts that we embrace, hide from, lie about, and make peace with.
