World Premiere

Magda is twenty six years old and has just left the closed rehabilitation centre where she spent a year, healing from an addiction to drugs and alcohol. The therapy there is based on community and work. She is not quite ready to leave this magical, closed off space and her peers, so she devises a workshop to go back and teach them the art of photography. Harsh reality and imagination mix in this space derived from the rules of daily life, as the patients try to portray what surrounds them and transform it into art.
