Silent Sonata


A man stays alone with his children in a half demolished house in the middle of a desolate field. His wife has just been killed by a grenade in a military battle.  He is expecting a new attack.  Instead, a wandering caravan called Circus Fantasticus stops by the house.

They bring along the dying director of the circus.  Is it possible for anything beautiful to happen in a landscape of war and death?  Can life go on?  Is it possible to realize that death does not exist?
