Regardless of her father’s insistence to not go digging into her mom’s previous, she does so, going additional again into Geraldine’s childhood as effectively. Alma discovers Becca additionally has the ability to go to the previous by way of others’ recollections. 

Alma’s fixed want to fix issues is at odds with Becca who feels it’s higher to let occasions take their very own course. By the top of the season, whereas Jacob has come to phrases with this reality of life, Alma is barely partially satisfied of the knowledge of this plan of action. 

Like the primary season, this time round as effectively, the animation is gorgeous-looking, good, heartbreaking and humorous.
