Solomon and Berta are two seekers who arrive – their treasured bathtub improbably in tow – in a land that promises respite from their many journeys. From the first optimistic moments after their arrival, to the final haunting scene at sea, the film captures the state of being displaced – whether by circumstance or by choice.
