A mental satellite film about the refugee situation in autumn 2015. A low-pressure system bringing politically provoked rough weather and diffuse fears hangs over Austria and Europe. Time lapses show outlines of cloud formations moving across the screen, laboriously etched into and animated on 3,000 glass panes by Veronika Schubert. Meandering without borders, they are accompanied by flashes of soundbites in which politicians and newscasters clearly discern migration problems in the fog.
