Behind the walls of a gloomy house, we observe an old couple fighting their last battle, which is already lost. While the old lady frantically knits, the old man is trying to find a new sense in things. It seems, however, that neither way is right, and the end is inevitable.

Nadja Andrasev | France, Hungary | 2019 | 13 min

When she finds out that her partner is cheating on her, the heroine of this original film chooses an even more original way to respond. This collage-like drama combining several animation techniques is a sequence of bizarre spectacles in which the woman obsessively watches her husband’s parallel relationships and makes an extensive collection of various “catches”. This hobby of hers helps her to overcome jealousy and realize her potential in an utterly unusual way.
