HOME SWEET HOME is a film about the invisibility of domestic violence. It is the story of ROSE, my grandmother, looking back at old family Super8 recordings from the 50s and 60s.
It is the discrepancy between appearance and reality that is in the focus of this film. Because domestic violence is usually not visible, the private abysses are skilfully covered in public. During the film Rose continually dismantles the image of postwar West German family happiness.
