This is a documentary focusing on my mother's experiences during the first 11 years of her married life as she tried to conceive a child. The film focuses on the trials and tribulations of these years whilst she undertook several years of fertility treatment, whilst also encapsulating my own questions surrounding my own identity as her only child. The film uses found footage and photographs as visual aids to her stories and descriptions, as well as scenic shots of the beach which I grew up on - a deeply rooted symbol of home for me and my mother. The film hopes to grasp the social and psychological turmoil of a young couple's struggle battling against infertility as well as questioning what their lives may have been like if they had never succeeded.
