You can’t bring back a dead horse, but there are ways to re-enter a lost place. The former family farm where Felix Klee spent his childhood has long been sold to new owners. Horse Sheila suffers from hay dust and with her last breath the past of a carefree life in the countryside seems to be gone forever.

HOAMWEH LUNG is an experimental film about remembering and farewell. 3D animations, screen recordings and documentary material come together to create an essay on reconstructed memory. And in the end, the wind strikes through virtual nettles
