Production Report featured in
German Films Quarterly 01/2020

Ebba, a woman in the 'best years', abandons her well-ordered life and marriage to join a traveling circus along Poland's Baltic Sea coast, performing as a bear! The experience of this transformation as well as an affair with the ringmaster confront her with disturbing questions: Does she want her husband back? Does she want her life back? It takes literally slipping into a bear’s skin for Ebba to recognize her own strength and the value that she gains from it.
