Home Grown - Isolation, Connection, Hope 

This insightful documentary intimately explores the life of Lisa, a woman ostracized by society and driven into the shadows of self-isolation. Facing mistreatment, misjudgment, and misunderstanding, Lisa's world shrinks to the confines of her flat, where she finds solace in the simplicity of routine: cleaning, brewing tea, smoking, and observing life from the detachment of her kitchen window. Her existence, marked by solitude and the unspoken pains of being an outcast, takes a turn when, unexpectedly, a friend reaches out, stepping into her secluded world. This moment promises a glimmer of connection and the potential for understanding, challenging the barriers of isolation that Lisa has been compelled to erect around herself.
