Ayda lives in a colourless world, and draws better than she communicates. Often times she says only one word or none at all. Every morning she buys half a sunflower seed bread and asks herself the question, „who buys the other half“. Thats seems the only thing Ayda can motivate herself for. She waits everyday in the bakery waiting for THE customer. With quite an obsession she follows the customer and draws his/her face.
In moments of big emotions, Ayda flees herself to sunflowerfields.
One day her routine falls: a young man buys the bread and escapes Ayda. She cannot draw his face. Again she flees herself to the sunflowerfields, but the young man confronts her with his aloofness there as well. Ayda seems to despair of this male intrusion.
