Signe Bauman is known for her open attitude towards taboos. Her films are explicit with a funny and ironic touch. So far she has told her stories only in the short format. “Rocks in My Pockets” is her first feature-length film and probably her most personal work, for the filmmaker takes a trip into her family’s past. She herself describes her latest work as “a funny film about depression”, but it’s probably more of a story about strong, independent women, domineering men, restrictive systems and mental illnesses that none of those involved take seriously. Her grandmother died mysteriously and the family remained silent about it. Signe assumes that she killed herself for she, too, suffers from depression and three of her cousins are mentally ill.
The filmmaker animates external influences and internal states of mind for her film, tries to make her own emotions and those of her fellow sufferers comprehensible to others and explains the connections between her personal and artistic emancipation and the process of coming to terms with the family secrets.

What begins as a biography of a house, told through bittersweet and sometimes humorous personal anecdotes, ultimately raises larger questions about the emotional content of physical spaces, and what happens to our histories when we leave those places behind.
The film contains extensive photography of the filmmaker's childhood home, which was sold just a few months after the images were taken.
