Director: Johannes Schmid

2011, Germany/Poland, 90 mins, English subtitles

We continue our tour of this tender story of 11-year-old Kattaka, who lives in Berlin with her father and pregnant mother. A keen speed swimmer, Kattaka is friends with neighbours, Knäcke and an older woman, Lena. One day, Kattaka learns that her natural father is, in fact, a Russian sailor whose ship is anchored in Gdańsk. Angry with her mother, she sets out with Lena and Knäcke to find him. For 70-year-old Lena, it’s also
a trip back to her home in Masuria, a place of Polish, Russian and German history. Together the unlikely friends come to reconcile their pasts.
