Learn to Swim

On one ordinary Sunday morning, Karin took her daughter's racing bicycle to see Wieland in the little runaways' farm he is now living in. Driven by unexplainable longing to her grown up baby that doesn’t want to be found, Karin appears without a notice in her son's new home. All she wants is to see if he has everything he needs and cycle her way back home before sunset, to give her grumpy daughter her stolen bike back. In her mind, Karin is sure of being the most caring, altruistic and well doing mother. Putting everything aside, opening a front with Wielands teenager sister, she is sacrificing her weekend, to take care of her son and fulfil her role as a mother. However, Wieland finds her attempt to please him rather unmindful and invidious. 
 Hit by Wieland’s rejection to her help attempt, Karin drops the reins and lets him lead her slowly through his little world.
