DEUTSCHE PREMIERE/GERMAN PREMIERE
A natural catastrophe has rendered the biblical city of Bethlehem uninhabitable. In an underground survival station, female scientists are making preparations to replant the earth’s surface. The task will be undertaken by a woman who was cloned after the disaster. She visits the oldest scientist on her deathbed and discusses the power of the past and the importance of nostalgia for survival. On a split screen, historical black-and-white images and futuristic architecture enter into a dialogue. The past is powerfully connected to a new generation.
