“The Wind’s Song” looks at the hidden spaces between who we are, and who we think we are, what we believe and what we know.
When twenty-six-year-old architect Josef’s beloved grandfather dies and his girlfriend threatens to leave him, he becomes depressed and reluctantly agrees to visit psychologist, Carla. This is the start of a relationship that will change both therapist and client.
As Josef struggles to recover from depression, his view of his family’s origins is jolted when he discovers that his beloved grandfather lied to him. Josef’s family was not Danish as he believed, but from the forests of Bavaria. His grandfather was not a member of the courageous Danish Resistance who helped to save the majority of their Jewish population by ferrying them across the straights to neutral Sweden. He was a Nazi, who secretly volunteered to join Hitler’s SS Waffen.
Carla, a caring therapist in a state of flux, is coasting in a burnt-out marriage. Her sessions with Josef initiate thoughts of her past – of her parents and her family. To revitalise their relationship, Steve suggests a trip to Europe.
Does the passion Steve hopes for during their trip return? Will Carla fill in the gaps about her family history during their holiday and provide the sense of completeness she longs for? And Josef, does he recover, face the truth of his heritage and move on?
