A Place Called Home

A Film by Isabella Brunäcker

Synopsis

Two people sleeping, the hand of one lying on the waist of the other. Eyes looking outwards and inwards, both questioning and revealing thoughts. The film asks questions of time, wanting to know how much can be in a single moment, how many nuances in a relationship, how many morning thoughts.
