Heading To My Wedding
Sandra Z. , EE
A chimneysweep wants to become a beloved film star but when his dream finally becomes true, he makes the role of a lifetime as a chimneysweep.
A young woman called Mari (Maria Lee Liivak) goes to the library to write but finds herself in an endless labyrinth where nothing is what it seems.
“Bacon and Eggs” is a dark comedy which is based on the Ancient Greek myth of the minotaur and Theseus. The film tries to modestly refer to people’s oddly beautiful desire to be part of life’s greater narratives and the inevitable price you have to pay for it.
Even in the houses which look tedious and monotonous from the outside, there is a story behind every window. There are more layers and twists and turns than meets the eye in every person. Relationships are filled with colours and unforeseen circumstances.
The traces of evil lead to the cellar.
A young woman discovers on the morning of her wedding day that she does not have a head. Her only aim is to try to find her lost head as quickly as possible and continue her life as nothing had happened.
