GER 2003, 94 min

As a variation on “Hänsel and Gretel”, THIS VERY MOMENT tells the story of a flustered stepmother who dumps her husbands children on the side of the road during a shopping trip to Poland. Afraid of repurcussions, she does not tell him what happened and returns home pretending everything is fine. However, when the father discovers his children are missing, he starts a desperate search and is willing to give up everything to find them. Sylvia tries to help him and comfort him.
