Where We Belong

a film by Jacqueline Zünd

Parents split up, a family falls apart. Two separate worlds emerge from what once was considered a unity. In constant transition, children now live between two homes. Where We Belong approaches their reality and focuses on how fragile, but also how brave, smart and funny children perceive their situation.
