Sweet Focus

A Film by Nadine Strittmatter,
and Katharina Kowalewski

Synopsis

Eva lives in the mountains and has been taking care of her grand mother all her life who just passed away two weeks ago. While she is grieving over her grandmother, she gets an unexpected and late visit from her sister Anna, an actress that is visiting from the big city. The two couldn’t be more different to each other – their first encounter ends in a fight. But through dream and time their personalities seem to merge; in the end Anna stays in the mountains, while Eva leaves to pursue her dreams.
