    Brief synopsis

    In this gritty 16mm film we see the protagonist alone in her flat, blowing out the candles on her birthday cake, lighting a sparkler. She contemplates the things that occupy one’s mind at 30: work, studies, children, life. Lena Lemerhofer’s atmospheric and highly personal portrait depicts birthdays as non-events. A journal-like miniature as a renunciation to life’s deadlines, a little film about time.
