Spring 2014 in Weimar on the Ilm River. On the water a small boat floats drifts with the current. Always a little bit further away, until only the rope connected to it crosses through the frame. A playful child has left the little boat in the water. Distant music accompanies the scene.

A typical summer in the city / never-ending masses of rain / water from the left, from the right, from above, from below / the woman walking down the stairs / I want to leave / away to the sea, away from the city / longing for summer
