When her father discovered a letter among some old papers it transformed filmmaker Holly Elson’s family. The contents of the letter revealed the secret life of her grandfather and set her father on a journey of discovery. The Tie that Binds unearths the extraordinary mystery at the heart of an ordinary family.
Told through interviews with three family members, the film is an intriguing and intimate portrait of a family in transition, exploring identity and belonging, secrets and fragments of memory, and ultimately the meaning of family.
