J.A. Martin Photographer

Top of page

In this sensitively portrayed feature drama, a wife takes the courageous decision to leave her five children at home and accompany her husband on his yearly summer tour as an itinerant photographer. This despite housework, routine and fourteen years of marriage having created a mutual indifference. They travel through a turn-of-the-century countryside of narrow lanes and old-time weddings, but most importantly, to an eventual rediscovery of each other.
