Documentary Short film
It’s early morning in Frankfurt – the first tram is running, rush hour traffic a distant hum. A white horse appears, ambling towards the tram tracks.
Werner, the horse's owner survived World War II buried in the rubble as a child, but he found a way to manage the traumatic experience with the help of a horse. In the same way as the white horse is a symbol of freedom, his life and the way he lives it may be a way to look at post-war Germany, not just the rebirth of industry, but the coming to terms with the suffering that W. G. Sebald said was the real hidden secret of post-war Germans.
