Description

In this warm and comic road-trip film, music teacher Kaspar learns that his mother, an expert quilter who has been scheduled to compete on the island of Ona, has passed away. To honor her legacy, he travels alongside his estranged transgender father to bring her final masterpiece to the competition. Throughout a series of unexpected encounters along the road, the two come to terms with their grief and rebuild their fractured relationship.
