Filmmaker Eva Contis, a daughter of the Silent Generation and a first-generation American, undertakes an emotional journey to reconstruct her family history. Her goal is to comprehend how inherited trauma has impacted her well-being since childhood, manifesting in issues such as learning disabilities, emotional struggles, and both mental and physical health challenges.

The Subject:

Intergenerational trauma can stem from biology, learned behaviors and even the collective experiences of a group. Some research suggests that trauma can affect a person’s DNA and potentially influence the health of future generations far removed from the traumatic event.

The Solution:

We don't have to live with the pain of trauma. Research indicates that assessment and awareness of trans-generational stories facilitates resilience. Further, we possess an innate ability to heal. What we once thought was impossible - to grow new neuro-pathways, even grow new neurons as an adult, and change the way we think, and thus feel, is groundbreaking territory that we plan to explore.
