Born in Buenos Aires, Martha Argerich, a prodigal child, began her piano lessons at the age of 5 and at 16 she won her first prizes in international piano competitions. At the age of 24, she won the seventh Frédéric Chopin Piano Competition, one of the most prestigious in the world, consolidating her international carrier. Today, Martha Argerich is acclaimed as one of the most important pianist of her generation.

Her worldwide renown contrasts, however, with the privacy of her intimate and family life. Married three times and mother to three daughters, Annie Dutoit, Lyda Chen and Stéphanie Argerich, Martha Argerich - with a known resistance to media and public exposure - agrees to be filmed by her youngest daughter, Stéphanie (photographer and director) in her everyday life in a sincere and spontaneous way.

Bloody Daughter is thus, simultaneously, the fruit of a familiar and intimate look upon Stéphanie Argerich’s parents, Martha Argerich and Stephen Kovacevich (who is also a key name in the classical music universe) and an autobiographical gesture, which reflects upon her own place within the Argerich clan and upon the delicate issues that cut across the family: the spotlight, maternity, madness and the joy of an exceptional family plunged in art and music.

“Bloody daughter 
What is it that flows in your veins? 
Where is your pain? 
I don’t know, but it hurts sometimes. 
I don’t know, but I realise, 
That I am getting old… 
And I’m still a silly girl…”
