Kuchen Essen

A Film by Jana Bürgelin

Synopsis

You have to pick the raisins out of everything!

You’re born, you live, you die. The trick is to do the best out of it. The question after the sense of life imposes itself in many situations. During the search after it, we have tried to throw a humorous and thoughtful view at the current condition of the people in Germany. Documentary elements are interwoven with staged parts, oldies meet young people , joy meets sadness, humans meet nature. Come along on a trip…
