Alone in her Vancouver apartment, a young woman calls her estranged grandfather in Budapest, ostensibly to ask about his career in the Hungarian film industry for a school project. The conversation shifts, becoming an attempt to fill a generational gap and a chance for the woman to reconnect with her family’s history. Nine Behind is a rumination on different types of distance: temporal, physical and emotional.
