At the time of recording this video, I am 30 years old. I am spending a few summer weeks in the Alpine valley of the Engadine, by the river Inn. The beginnings of the trip unfold in the company of my mother, who has offered to share the two-day journey from Warsaw with me. According to our plan, after a few days I take my mother to the airport in Zurich - together still, we cross the Flüela Pass, open for the season, and I return to Susch, where I temporarily stay and work, on my own.
