Niah (Nancy Mensah-Offei), a student, returns to the small town where she grew up, for her mother’s funeral. A stress test for her as well as for her sister Anna, who lives there. Finely acted and succinctly staged, Schwestern traces that silent, deep mourning compiled from a number of experiences, inherent to every departure.
