As Anke enters retirement, she leaves behind her solitary life in rural Germany and memories of a once perfect family life and travels to protest-ridden Hong Kong, a place that has kept her son away from her for many years. Through her travels and casual exchanges with strangers Anke begins to settle into a new chapter of her life.

Jonas Bak’s first feature, with music by Brian Eno, is an atmospheric feat that perfectly encapsulates isolation and loneliness while leaving space for exploration and hopefulness.

This screening is part of the Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival, running from 4 - 24 May, and in partnership with Goethe Institute. Visit to explore the SMHAF programme. It takes place during Mental Health Awareness Week, which this year explores the theme of Loneliness.

This screening will include a Q&A with director Jonas Bak and producer Charlotte Lelong.
