A puppet animation exploring the theme of father-daughter relationships. In a hospital room, a man, accompanied by his daughter, lies on the bed. The daughter recalls a childhood moment when as a little girl she tried to share her experience with an injured bird with her father. A moment of misunderstanding and a lost embrace have stretched out into many years, all the way to this hospital room. She asks herself: Should you hide your pain? Should you close yourself inside your inner world, full of longing for your father to display his? But, at the moment when a window pane breaks under the impact of a little bird, something changes. The film depicts their relationship in para-documentary style with a hand-held camera feel and close-ups.
