A convent, once a prison, then a concentration and labor camp, later a girls reformatory in the seventies and today a psychiatric clinic that has also been the Breitenau memorial since the 1980s. Here, in that one place, one can see recurring patterns over time. In the linear feature film version, the three individual passages are woven together so that memories and shifts in time are produced, all of which revolve around the same location.
