After 25 years Lilla, „the small one“, encounters her lover from her youth. He invites her to his cottage over the weekend and they both hope to approach each other again and to find common ground – it was a drastic incident which let their love end back then.

Seeing each other now brings back memories from the past, good ones, but also not so good ones: the little brother, of whom Lilla had to take care of so very early. Her mother who wasn’t able to love her own children. The German nanny Magda, who meant so much to Lilla – until she left the family. But one thing is for sure: Lilla finally wants to become a sunshine child!

Artful, devoured and baffling
