A woman in her thirties. Looming war forces her and her family to move out and leave everything. Before setting off, the woman digs a hole in the ground where she secures a sewing machine, her most cherished possession and the instrument of her work. After five years the war is over. The woman comes back and finds her sewing machine which has survived, forgetful of all the destruction history has brought on. Almost seventy years go by and another woman, her granddaughter, finds the sewing machine among heaps of forgotten things and lost memories. It is still perfectly working. Past and present entwine, sewn together by skilful hands weaving new stories. From this texture PIXXI surfaces.
