This poetic shortmovie about a woman‘s walk to a bakery creates an equally dismal as charming image of a provincial town. The
profane action is told in black-and-white images that are reminiscent of a country movie.
Supported by dance and rhythm
the woman marches to the loaf, always walking under the
burning heat of the summer sun. From nature into town she goes her way, moved by Jens Höffkens poetry. A poetry that turns the
provincial pavement into something beautiful: Into an excess
of Biedermeier that gives birth to joy.
