In Ella, Primoz Ekart's play based on Herbert Achternbusch's same-titled drama, a man tells the story of his mother, beaten by her father until she loses her mind. The play, a minimalistic tour de force, features two actors - Stefka Drolc as Ella and Primoz Ekart as her son - and a single piece of music, La Violetera (Flower Girl), Silence's adaptation of Charlie Chaplin's famous City Lights theme.
