By Farah Hasanbegović • 7' • HungarySynopsis:
The end of the world has been coming for years. In a crossover between a cooking show and animated images, a girl recalls her first encounter with depression.
In her autobiographical documentary, the young director uses cartoon impressions, photographic memories, and the various stages of baking a cake to draw the viewer into her own stream of consciousness, and using images full of kindness, tenderness, and playfulness, she deals with the sadness that began during a children's birthday party many years ago.
