Auf Deutsch - in German

The sisters have moved out to teach the others about fear. Nele Winkler, Juliana Götze and Rita Seredßus, three actresses with down-syndrome act and dance freely to scenes from Chekhov’s play Three Sisters.  They leave no room for doubt about how they picture their lives. The only thing they have in tow is their nanny, Anfissa (Angela Winkler), and her brother Andrej (Tammo Winkler). Everything else stays there where it belongs, in the Russian countryside.
