In this artistic documentary, choreographer Ruth Meyer returns to the origin of her imagination; the time she spent in hiding during WW II. Teaming up with a number of fine artists and choreographers she can relate to, she creates a dance mosaic. In a personal way, this poetic visualisation brings to life the healing effects of the imagination. This ‘Gesamtkunstwerk’ on the intersection of dance, fine art, drama and documentary is a true ode to the imagination.
