Focus Years: 2009 | Country: Canada
Alice is a teenager more interested in tunes and texting than dead relatives she never knew. But a story her late great grandmother leaves behind in a dollhouse wrenches Alice out of her programmed world.
In an age when our human nature draws us inexorably to bigger communities, wired communication and programmed lives, we are inevitably orphaned from...the rest of nature. Love, Emma is a magical story of how a traumatic moment in the life of a girl living in a very different time, provides teenage Alice with her first meaningful contact with the wild. Her manufactured world is never the same.
