An elegiac journey through landscapes of remembrance and forgetting. Filmed on the train between Montreal and Halifax, passing images evoke a sense of longing for events forever past. Reflecting on the loss of her mother, Away for Christmas creates an intimate space where the viewer's own longings reflect, shimmer, then just as quickly, vanish.
