Am Rande der Autobahn entspinnt sich ein düsteres Endzeit-Musical, nehmen die unterdrückten Gefühle eines jungen Mädchens die Form von Tieren an und muss sich eine Eisbärin entscheiden, ob der kanadische Grizzly eher Freund oder Futter ist. Im zweiten Wettbewerbsblock stoßen wir die Türen zum Unbewussten auf und spüren dem nach, was sonst im Verborgenen liegt. Dauer: 72'
