The Witch

Everything seems to be fine in the young Woman's life. She works as a paramedic – a profession requiring understanding and compassion – but it is her who actually is in need of help to alleviate the restlessness in her. As a doctor, the Woman lacks emotional connection with her patients; she feels alienation towards other people and the surroundings. Her behavior is ironical and provoking. When sitting on a bench in front of her home – a panel apartment building, the Woman is made to look into the mirror by a random bypasser.
