My Long Distance Friend

Having struggled to survive in Europe from the age of nine, the Zimbabwean OG attempts to find balance in her life.

OG is a young woman who has wandered around Europe since she left Zimbabwe at the age of nine. From that point she has always struggled to survive. Director Carina Molier, OG’s long-distance friend, follows her in the quest both to reunite her with her daughter, taken away at an early age, and to enable her to find peace of mind. This film is about displacement, about longing for security and about rediscovering relationships in an ever-globalising and inhospitable world.
