High Expectation focuses on society’s depiction of femininity in the context of family photography, and the gap between the idealized photograph and the reality it represents.The film questions the role of family photography as the key way to form memories and examines the effect it can have on one’s perception of the future.
People take the same photographs and most family albums look alike. The film visits some of these iconic family photos scenarios, feeding of the tension and dissonance created through the staging of mundane moments in life.
