Jury's statement:
In her film, the director chooses two plot strands that are already extraordinary and radical in their own right. One shows the training of police horses for demonstrations and the other a single mother of a severely traumatised adopted child. The outstanding thing about this film is not only the interaction of these two strands, but also their not yet seen meaningful merging, dissolution, even salvation, which is fought for by a great Nina Hoss. We would like to distinguish this courage in terms of content, form and production.
