She has her fish, her toys, her room and her imagination, but she won't talk. Talking just causes problems. A seven-year-old girl's perception of adulthood through a marriage breakdown.

"I've travelled in the world of childhood since I was a child... even more so now that I have children of my own. They are a source of endless fascination, insight and inspiration, and, to me, childhood is the most precious of all things.

In one form or another then, much of what I write and think about concerns childhood. This film is my most direct attempt yet at penetrating that world. Without my children it wouldn't have been possible." - Rolf De Heer
