New Snow

A silent and introverted 12 year old girl lives in a dysfunctional family on the outskirts of a village. Her father is physically violent and her mother is seriously ill, and, like the girl herself: she is defenseless. At home, the girl carries out the roles of both nurse and housekeeper. On the day, on which we tell her story, the girl decides to break through the circle of fear, violence and oppression of her daily life. Secretly, she makes the serious decision to step through the gate of her parents' land, into life and into her own personal responsibility. The film is about unquenchable thirst for life, which, despite all duties and burdens that we loyally carry with us, swells up inside us and makes us act. On another level, the film examines the price that the girl has to pay to throw off these chains of slavery; to free herself from oppressive duties.
