official super 8mm movie for the song "gebroken wit" by Elly Nieman, introducing Rolina & Benjamin Grasmeijer. Shot in the Netherlands during one of the toughest winters since years. The music is composed by Jan Borger, who also plays the piano.

Elly wrote the song for a mother who lost her child, however, the text only speaks in metaphors. Above all, it's a song about hope. Therefore the song and this film are dedicated to Lida Koning.
