shortfilm / 6 ½ min

commissioned by zdf / 2008


Waltraut, an angel, is stuck on earth: her wings shrunk and she cannot return to heaven. Waltraut is furious! In order to get back, she forces Kuno, a circus artist, to shoot her up in the sky with his giant cannon. But it doesn’t work. Waltraut has to come to terms with a life as an ordinary person. A life she is not meant to live. Will Waltraut ever manage to fly again?
