An act of violence forces a young mother and her 3-year-old son to flee across wintry Austria. On her journey she has to face responsibility and eventually realizes that we all leave traces in the lives of others, whether we want or not.
“I needed authentic, psychologically realistic acting … I started looking for the best possible cast for this story. I found them in my sister Agnes and her son Elias. I had wanted to work with both of them for a long time and I am very grateful that Agnes gave us the opportunity to observe the authentic connection to her son and to be able to record it…” (K. von Veegh)
