Monte Vertià - The rush of freedom
1906: A society in upheaval, characterized by fears and hopes. The first dropouts - among them the young Hermann Hesse and the psychoanalyst Otto Gross - search for their paradise and find it in the south of Switzerland, on Monte Verità. The reformers not only take off their clothes, but also the mental corset that threatens to suffocate society. The young mother Hanna Leitner is also drawn to Ascona to escape her bourgeois role. Torn between feelings of guilt towards the family she left behind and the fascination of a self-determined life, Hanna not only discovers her passion for photography, but also finds her own voice.
