Description: There are moments frozen under glass. Inga is a poet. She wants to buy and restore a house she is drawn to that reminds her of her childhood home, but her distant husband Hermann sees little value in it or many of the things Inga loves. Inga realizes that many things in her life are coming full circle. Her crumbling marriage is a stark contrast to her relationship with her eight-year-old daughter, with whom she shares her hopes, fears and inner-most thoughts following her recovery from breast cancer. By day their lives seem magical, full of cloud watching, kite flying and lazy summer drives. But at night, Inga is troubled by her marriage, its lack of intimacy and her fear of her own mortality. By weaving optimism into her life's story it is in her own writing that she hears the echo of her mother's journey and experiences the revelation that allows her transformation.
