Für Schlechtere Zeiten

A Film by Louise Peter

Synopsis

These are uncertain times. For empathetic and inquisitive seven-year old Lotte, a bubble of “childhood bliss” is not her reality. With her parents’ constant arguing, Lotte struggles to understand the source of the stress. One evening, Lotte sees her mother frantically stashing away cubes of bread and mutters in passing they are *for harder times*. For harder times? Lotte grapples with the idea and what her mom could mean
by *harder times*. She remembers talks about THE WAR from visits to her grandparent’s house. Does it mean that war is coming?
