Production Details / Press Releases

How is it when we take one step at a time rather than adapting ourselves to the speed of the so-called development?
How is it when a feeling can not be categorized or remains undefined?
How is it when a voice that speaks remains unheard?
And how can people still find each other?

It is getting harder to share silence. It feels like we need to get louder to be considered at all.
“backyard” may be the place where we end up if we cannot always move forward or want to…
If we just do not manage to keep things under control.
For some, in absolute isolation… For others, towards self-realization…

In the end, it is only people who hide in a yard of hope.
