Monica is an intimate portrait of a woman who returns home after a long absence to confront the wounds of her past.

Since leaving as a teenager, Monica (Trace Lysette) reconnects with her mother (Patricia Clarkson) and the rest of her family, finally allowing her to embark on a path of healing and acceptance.

The film delves into Monica’s internal world and state of mind. It explores her pain and fears, her needs and her desires. And it ultimately explores universal themes of abandonment and forgiveness.
