Description:

Aurora Borealis is a family story with plenty of twists, taking place on two separate timelines. It analyzes the relationship between a mother and a daughter in great depths. Mária, the elderly mother of Olga, the successful attorney living in Vienna, unexpectedly falls into a coma. While she is hovering between life and death, Olga comes across a deliberately withheld secret. The increasingly passionate investigation takes her back to the war-torn Europe of the 50s; where, at the end of her journey, she discovers herself: a woman she never knew before.
