Aurora Borealis is a family story with two twisting timelines. Mária is the elderly mother of Olga, a successful lawyer living in Vienna. Mária falls unexpectedly ill and is now in a coma. As Mária hovers between life and death, Olga inadvertently unearths a secret that had been deliberately hidden. Her investigation takes her all the way back to the war-torn Europe of the 1950s. The film discusses the dramatic situations that grow out from crises of identity, the open wounds caused by war in a shattered Europe, and the liberating power of lies unveiled.
