Das verkommene Land

The world is on fire. Three women on the shore of a lake. Trapped between water and fire. There is hardly any chance of survival. But then a boat with two seats washes up. Meanwhile, Medea negotiates with Noah whether and how the human species can be saved from the apocalypse, and three actresses recollect fragments of their lives. And above all, there is the question: Whose stories have room on the boat?

This is about memories; memories of three women and the question of why some memories get to be heard and others don’t. The starting point was interviews with all participants.
