I remember my grandmother’s stories, who was a nurse at the mental ward of a small town hospital in Hungary. Stories about mentally ill women, who had lost contact with reality and live their lives locked up. And yet, the delusions of these women broaden the blunt everyday village life, and transform it into something enchanting. I would like to listen to these well-known stories over and over again, but as time passes, this becomes impossible.
