`By turns beguiling and unsettling, Flotsam examines grief and loss through the eyes of an extraordinary child' Rachel SeiffertTrine and her mother live in a cottage on the German coast.
The mudflats that surround them disappear and reappear with the North Sea tides.
The family leads a lonely existence, but each person has adapted in their own way.
Anna roams the beaches collecting flotsam and jetsam to make art, while Trine loves playing on a wartime shipwreck.
That is, until she loses her brother. In her taut style, Meike Ziervogel tells a coming-of-age story from 1950s Germany - a place still haunted by war.
A place where people pretend not to notice the ghosts.
