Synopsis Yella lives in constant flight with good reason: she fears the person with whom, until recently, she shared a relationship and a business, both of which have ended; but since her ex-husband refuses to accept the situation, her constant flight searching for jobs in neighbouring cities is conditioned by this shadow and by her own misfortunes. The movie is not, however, a stalker-victim tale. The phantasmagoria and awkwardness, the crowns of trees, the high risk investments and the cawings of crows are accompaniments that create a diffuse and floating reality, a reality that seems more like a dream, especially when her stalker, with the excuse of driving her to the train station on her way to her new life, swerves off the road into the river in a desperate attempt to not let go. Yella, soaked and dazed, manages to escape and join the train to Hannover. Our story begins and ends here.
