For 13 years Czech filmmaker Helena Třeštíková followed this large, strong, caring woman as she battled through toxic relationships, endless knock-backs from the Kafkaesque bureaucracy of social services and having her son committed to a psychiatric facility. Despite living in her car and being rejected from all angles, Mallory keeps pushing to get off the street and help others around her. A mesmerizing portrait of a woman’s life on the fringes of society and a true testament to human resilience.
