Runing time: 12 minutes
The story which is told is about an ordinary girl in a small town in southern Germany. The photos, likewise, show typical images of small-town somewhere. Within these common images and words, I explore how in such a context personality and individuality develop. From this very personal basis, I attempt to create a statement about the nation and history, bigger than just the world of the small town girl. "No Place like home" is about identity. An identity, I didn't chose myself, but that has been given to me and will forever be part of my past and history.
