This movie is the story of a journey. A journey out of the self-imposed limitations, back to a boundless life. When we enter this world, we are free. Free from any self-doubt, prejudices and values.
We are able to learn everything out there. Over time we are shaped by education and culture and we develop certain beliefs and values that often lead us away from our own path.
„My vision was to produce a film that shows how we where born into an open world and then, over time, our wings are clipped by fears, expectations and guidelines. I didn‘t want to make an instruction video or documentation, but rather a film that takes the viewer on a journey to themselves. After some thought, I came to the conclusion that the only way to convey such a message without being instructive was to tell my own story. That cost me a lot of effort in the beginning, because that would mean exposing some very personal thoughts and fears in the film. The decision to include my daughter in the film was not an easy one either. But since I took great care to respect her dignity in every sequence, I finally decided on it.”
