In Barbara Kopple’s latest film, actress Mariel Hemingway (Academy Award® nominee, Manhattan) strives to understand her family’s heartbreaking history. Mariel grew up on the Hemingway family farm in Idaho, the same place her famous grandfather, Ernest Hemingway, took his own life months before she was born. The youngest of three girls, Mariel’s supermodel sister, Margaux, also committed suicide in 1996, while Muffet has suffered with mental illness all her life. As Mariel struggles with the tragedies that have shaped her, she finds a way to overcome a similar fate by embracing a mindful and healthy lifestyle. Rare archival footage of the Hemingway sisters hauntingly reveals deeply hidden secrets as Mariel learns to accept her “birthright” with compassion and love.
