20:10 Everything will not be fine (Nerven Bruch Zusammen)
By Arash T. Riahi, 2012
Ten years after filming homeless women in a transitional home, Arash T. Riahi returns to this place. He meets some of the women he filmed before and gets to know new faces with similar or different lives and experiences.
With great care he portraits their day-to-day life and struggle for justice. What they have in common is their alienation from what they once called "home". Even in this random community of purpose in the transitional home they suffer setbacks.
However, here the women discover how it feels to hear encouraging words, and perhaps to even know solidarity. A long-term documentary as an homage to all the women that life didn't treat well enough yet.
