    • Synopsis
    • Consistently told through the eyes of "Kid" the audience experiences a family tragedy. 7 years old "Kid" can only guess the background of his single mother´s struggle. When she dies, "Kid" has to face the fears and hardships of the world himself. While still having the hope to find his mother he estranges from his environment more and more.
      This film reminds adults how „being a child" really feels like. "Kid" is naive and playful, but absolutely at the mercy of events and simply not able to accept losses.
