My short film attempts to articulate the life of my cousin Sabrina between her native United States and Switzerland where she is studying. The film focuses on issues of beauty, fantasy and uprooting. Following Sabrina enabled me to construct a filmic tension between fiction and non-fiction, that emphasizes the game that Sabrina sometimes played with the camera.
