An astonishing record of hereditary nature of trauma, Jacinta follows the lives of three generations of women struggling to find stability amid years of dependency. Jacinta leaves the Maine Correctional Center, leaving her other behind to complete her own sentence, and attempted to rebuild her relationship with Caylynn, her pretematurally wise pre-teen daughter who craves time and attention from the mother she adores. But as the pressures of shaping a life in a world she has hardly known sober proves increasingly challenging, she brings the view into her emotional, day-to-day battle to find peace with herself and earn the trust of her family. A devastatingly insightful film that gives us a window into the effects of Jacinta’s addiction but, most importantly, its root causes. Jacinta’s harrowing experience and her child’s emotionally astute and profound reaction to years of disappointment combine to create a tragic but hopeful tale of love and American life.
