Following fairy-tales and personal memories like a trail of breadcrumbs, this film descends into the haunted woodlands where the fairy tales of childhood persist within the subconscious. This fairy tale is intertwined with an anthropological exploration of modern day, post-conflict Eastern Europe. It is about the accumulation of history, the accumulation of repetitive action, the retelling of stories retold, the retention of belief, and the unconscious osmosis of ideas. Directed and produced by Jessica Oreck.
