At home the young woman is a passive observer – her parents’ daily quarrelling has no effect on her except perhaps to set an imaginary cinema of the mind in motion. Then she leaves for the big city. Falling in love. Working. That’s what her new freedom could bring, but this alienating loneliness restricts her life even here. Daniela Krajčová uses chalk animations and expressive music to show how parental relationship patterns affect us even from a distance. An artistic journey into the labyrinth of (co-)dependence.
