Who wants to capture the essence of life can either do so in using a pen and a piece of paper or a guitar.
Berliner Anne Schwietzer has decided to do the latter.
She sings about the people she has met, loved and lost, about her hometown, about joy and pain.
And about the moments when the past is knocking on the door: bringing back places and words as if they'd never disappeared.
Her songs tell of life's ups and downs that bring people together – strangers or not.
