Germany | 2017 | fiction | 30 min. Short matters!

Maryna and Tava are working shifts on a milk farm in Eastern Germany. When the farm manager goes on a business trip Tava does not show up at work. The next night Maryna wakes up in her container realizing that she is not alone: Tava is lying next to her, fast asleep, firmly clinging to her. Maryna doesn’t tell anyone that she met Tava. When she returns to her container, the girl has disappeared again. Her tracks are losing themselves at some drinking session in the surrounding countryside. EFA Nomination – Cork Film Festival.
