In their sensitive, beautifully filmed portrait of the Mosher family who live in Mohawk Valley, N.Y., filmmakers Michael Palmieri and Donal Mosher explore how people whose voices go unheard move through life like ghosts, unable to change their circumstances. Shot over the course of a year, from one Halloween to the next, the film follows three generations as they struggle with poverty, an unplanned pregnancy, a custody battle and the lingering trauma of war. The film has won multiple awards in both the United States and Europe including the Grand Jury Prize at Silverdocs, and was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for best documentary of 2009.
