Six miniatures follow Karin Berger’s daughter’s development in documentary images and pointed visual metaphors. Set to the thundering sounds of “Carmina Burana”, a gloriously self-ironic look at the contradictions and absurdities of love and selfrealization that go along with motherhood; and no least, at the dodgy question of handing down women’s roles.
