The film uses animated objects discovered in the family archives to recount the life of my mother. It is a 20th century biography: growing up in the Nazi era, teenage years in post-war Germany, the building of the Wall and life in the GDR and then reunified Germany. It is a story of escaping and adapting, challenging and conforming.
