Vicky, is a solitary little girl, with a magical gift: she can reproduce any scent she likes, and collects them in a series of carefully labelled jars.

Vicky has secretly captured the scent of Joanne, her mother for whom she nurtures a wild, excessive love.

When her father’s sister Julia bursts into their life, Vicky reproduces her smell and is transported into dark and archaic memories which lead her to uncover the secrets of her village, her family and her own existence.

Presented in partnership with Queer Vision Film Festival.
