In Fragments from an unknown woman a female narrator is telling about another woman, about her fears and memories, while random images of rooms, parks and streets flow through the story.
The characters remain unknown, seen only in glimpses or heard only through fragmented dialogues.
The video explores mental and emotional disorders by reflecting on questions such as the need to change the present but remaining in the past and the difficulty of expressing one’s feelings.

soundtrack: Susana Chiocca after piano improvisation by Catarina Miranda
voices: Merete Nordahl and Håkon M. Vassvik
