Angelika  Overath - Past in the Present


How do you spend the first night after the death of a loved one?

Johanna takes her mother's last few possessions back to the flat where she was born. She reluctantly sorts her mother's laundry, and while the washing machine is running she makes an inventory of her childhood…

A provocative, quiet, sympathetically told story of what families leave unsaid – a plea for an honest confrontation with the past.
