MY THOUGHTS ARE SILENT is a story about immigration, as a state of mind. It’s about a young man, who grew up too quickly and his middleaged mother, who managed to stay young at heart. It is a story about the last journey to the places of your childhood, which do not become one’s true love, but love they can teach.
