Jury Comments on the film:
"Given in Exchange achieves to combine different images of various content and meaning as cold modern house fronts, table dance workplaces with people statements to contrast remorses of a young mother and reinforce the emotional impact of his remarkable documentary on loneliness, rejection and mothers love. We find simultaneously a call to find the lost son through prayers of various religions and spirituality."
This documentary follows the story of a mother's love: from an empty heart to a tragedy that has changed her, to creation and love, from rejecting her own son to adopting someone else's child and accepting him as her own.
