Excerpt (4:30)

In this excerpt the filmmaker does not impose her views on the conversation, preferring to let the people tell their own story. There is no narration and the filmmaker has chosen a very intimate setting, a family barbecue, where the participants will be at ease and will be able to express themselves more naturally than if it was a formal interview.
