In this experimental documentary, a young girl named Hanna talks about the sister she lost.

In this experimental documentary, Hanna talks about the sister she lost. Hanna is present only in voice-over, accompanying another story, told in images, starting with snowy trees and gradually engaging more closely with the subject. The spoken words are a mixture of dreams, thoughts, and recollections – including memories of that last happy day and its horrific conclusion, and they all provide insight into the world of a young girl suffering terrible grief.
