Our alliance partner Adelheid|Female Economy presents Hetty & George.

How does a person deal with that which comes in his path? For her, it’s about what clarity is left in her mother who is suffering from dementia. For him, it’s about finding out, at a later age, that he is much more homosexual than he always thought. In Hetty & George the two question each other.
