Video: Keeping Balance


Denise, a 20 year old girl visits nearly every day the Viennese ‘Prater’ amusement park to take some rides with the electronic ‘Tagada’ carousel because it helps her to get over her past. Keeping Balance is a story about finding balance in life. Whatever happens, there is always a way to get through difficult times.
