The Diagonale’20 was cancelled due to official measures to contain the spread of COVID-19.
At a Chinese restaurant, two siblings meet for the first time after their mother’s death, and it turns out to be just as intimate as it is conflictual. Raphaela Schmid’s tragicomedy shows how between kitsch lighting, aquariums, and fortune cookies, a special parting ritual makes it possible to overcome a loss of words and sense of guilt.
