Synopsis: Gitti Bader is a woman who lives her life to the fullest. She works as a speech therapist, loves to dance and to swim and is an optimistic person. But because of her dwarfism, Gitti Bader suffers from osteoarthritis in her whole body, causing severe pain, and this stops her living a „normal“ untroubled life. The filmmaker Daniel Lang portrays this confident young woman, who in the face of her disability masters her life and has learned to embrace the sunny side of it. The graphic composition creates a highly stylised and aesthetic portrait full of poetry and life-affirming ease that bolsters the spirit of the viewer.Director: Daniel Lang
