A Jar Full of Life


Marleen is a young woman whose life hasn’t started yet. Already in her early 20s, she still lives at home with her parents and has no goals or aspirations to speak of. Like a lot of people her age, she’s stuck in a rut that seems impossible to overcome. Even her beloved big brother can’t save her from what looks like a permanent slump. Ultimately, it takes a personal tragedy to shake her awake. Out of a sense of guilt and despair, Marleen embarks on an adventure she’s clearly not prepared for. Indeed, there’s a ship waiting in Hamburg to sweep her off to Antarctica. But how is she supposed to get there with only eight euros in her pocket? It’s the beginning of a storybook journey that’s just as funny as it is emotionally poignant. In the course of her road-trip adventure, Marleen realizes the world is full of people who are even wilder and crazier than she is. She also makes an unexpected discovery: the further she travels away from home, the closer she gets to herself.
