SYNOPSIS

Jill, a blind woman who is a few months away from getting married, was adopted when she was very young. She believes that her birth-mother abandoned her due to her blindness. Despite her anger, however, she feels a strong desire to locate her birth-mother before creating her own family.
 

DIRECTOR’S STATEMENT

Although blindness is a big part of Jill’s character definition, Journey is not about blindness but about revisiting the past. This is a story that all of us can relate to since we all, at some point or another in our lives, shared the similar experience of making a choice about discovering the truth from the past. Is it better to just hold onto our version of truth, or is it worth risking our heart for a chance to find out what really happened? The story’s main conflict comes from Jill’s choice to look for and finally meet her birth-mother. This could be a beginning of a great reunion; however, she could also get rejected all over again.
