18 one-minute portraits of women, individually defamiliarized by filter, compression, and expansion. An optical game of revealing and concealing is carried out on a metaphorical level. Every chapter receives equal devotion, no matter whether film star, friend, or mother. With live networks of sound improvised by Kurz/Sunkist, a rather personal overall image gradually emerges: the 18 portraits turn into 19, as the content-related selection ultimately refers back to the filmmaker herself.
