Jeder der fällt hat Flügel
Those Who Fall Have Wings
Time stands still for young and asthmatic Kati, but she has to bid her farewell to move on.The burden on the chest of asthmatic Kati is too heavy for the shoulders of her four-year-old baby sister. A severe loss and the awakening of Kati’s sexuality take their toll on the fifteen-year-old visionary girl. But like a sound that merges into silence, Kati attempts to carry her memories to a place of recurring farewell.
