Children constantly amaze us: their boundless curiosity, imagination and original logical conclusions. This immediacy doesn’t stop at taboos. People don’t talk much about death, but children know about it. Everyone can die. Even their parents. Even they themselves.

In raw and unvarnished images the film shows little blonde Anna-Lena, prancing around in her pink child’s world and getting on her parents’ nerves, because Anna-Lena absolutely refuses to play outside. She’s afraid of dirt and prefers to clean house all day, full of herself and nothing else. In in a drama straight out of Shock-Headed Peter, the 4-minute animation shows the pretty little girl’s transformation into her ideal: a soft, pink, albeit lifeless and stiff puppet. Her parents are watching the sinister process helplessly and even the doctor is running out of options.

Tormented by his girl-friend’s jabbering, the protagonist escapes into a fantasy world. But alas, his shrill dream turns out to be less than half as pleasant as he thought. A fast-paced black comedy with and about gender stereotypes.

Nothing is more torturing than an unresolved situation and unspoken words. One’s inner emotional chaos reflects one’s perception of the world and at some point acting is better than continued suffering. Based on the eponymous poem by Etta Streicher.
