In this tender exchange between two women across the generations, the story surrounding The Green Dress is brought to life through dance and conversation. Made by a mother for her daughter from the lining of an old coat during a time of austerity, resourcefulness and creativity, this is a time that resonates today. Memories are like a dance, elusive yet rich in detail and emotion. Capturing these fleeting recollections on film is a delicate process.
