Spending her days with her cherished daughter while her husband is at work, Christine shares her knowledge of, and wonder at, the world. This beautiful, seemingly ordinary family live a frugal life of simple joys but their peaceful family dynamic begins to fracture under the intrusion of violence. Winner of the Special Jury Prize at the 2013 Venice Film Festival and featuring an award-winning performance from Alexandra Finder, acclaimed director Philip Gröning (Into Great Silence) skilfully charts Christine’s painful unravelling, conveying a life full of contradictory moments, blissful play and bitter humiliation.
