The Child in the Box

Das Kind in der Schachtel

Directing: Gloria Dürnberger


The story of a mother who has become mentally ill shortly before her child was born. And the story of a child taken in by a foster family, though she does not know for how long. Thirty years later the child, now an adult, assumes responsibility for the woman who calls herself her mother. How is a person connected, if at all, to an individual she has never spent more than two hours at a time with, with whom she doesn’t even appear in a photograph?
