She Makes and Unmakes


(in development)


Writer and director: Jonas Bak


Jenna is 34, unmarried and without children,
a “left-over woman” in Hong Kong society.
She is thinking about motherhood,
but her German partner Max is out of work and
going through a mental crisis.
She cares for him and hides their struggles from her family.
Their expectations and Hong Kong suffocate her.
To heal Max and to be able to breathe again,
she brings him home to a simpler life in his rural German town.
