Teresa Wennberg

In a mixture of animated images and scenes played by actors, a situation is presented, which immediately changes into another, repeating itself, with flashes from the past – “the subjective memory”, and of the future – “the illuminated imagination”, to finally find itself almost back at the beginning, where everything is questioned once again.
