FLAWLESS is about the importance of memory, and highlights the journey of Estella, who is discovering her own identity as she deals with the challenges of her mother’s descent into Alzheimer’s disease, and her relationship with her father as he lovingly cares for his wife.  In flashbacks we see episodes in the early relationship of the couple, and Estella becomes part of her mother’s memories, as who the mother was then helps the daughter make sense of who they both are now.
