A car accident without a driver. A dog that suddenly disappears. What is real here? Inspired by Sigmund Freud’s dream interpretation, the protagonists are driven by processing an undefined guilt. Daschka leaves both the characters and its audience equally in the dark: no detail, no methodology can be taken for granted. Although the cinematic narration seems to carry on linearly, the dreamlike incidences remain unpredictable.
