Heike  Duken - We’re Still Family
 
 
 
 

 

A story about mothers and daughters, guilt and forgiveness, and how we become who we are

The past is casting its long shadow over the family Fux, all the way from 1925 – when two young brothers were raised to become soldiers, and, in the 1930s, forced to decide whose side they're on – to the present day. Ina, the daughter of one of the brothers, is estranged from her family and its history. When she becomes pregnant at 19, she decides to raise her daughter Floh by herself, as the baby's father is unwilling to stay.

Years later Floh, now a young woman, starts looking into her family history – driven by her anger at her absent father, at the state and at society. What she discovers – as well as her own pregnancy – changes everything. History threatens to repeat itself, but Floh is determined to work together with her grandfather to overcome the curse of yesterday and search for the one thing that will, despite everything, keep the family together.

Inspired by Heike Duken's own family history.

"Heike Duken has a bright, breezy style and perfect pitch, and her writing is full of energy."
