I should have been a cosy evening. Benjamin cooks himself his favorite dish: Borschtsch. But he cannot enjoy the meal because he only has to think about his old gas hearth. Did he switch it off or not? To absolutely sure, he takes a Polaroid before he leaves the appartment...
A woman, her body, and the destructive voice that controls her. The story is about individual power in the wrong hands. INA needs to get her power back from JOY who has taken it. This intense and raw confrontation is shot in 35mm, entirely in black and white, with both players naked. The nudity is non-erotic and allows the audience to experience the characters’ extreme circumstances of primitive vulnerability.
Max has been blind his entire life. He adjusted to not being able to see, if it wasn't for the desperate desire to once see the face of Lily, the love of his life – even if it is just for the blink of an eye. After undergoing a new, ground-breaking kind of surgery he is given a pill which 24 hours after intake is supposed to trigger his ability to see – one time only and with the effect merely lasting up to 90 seconds. Enough to fulfill his everlasting yearning he thinks as he and Lily leave for a trip to someplace beautiful to enjoy the precious moment – maybe to Panama, as a classic german childrens book playfully suggests. But disaster strikes when Max tries to please a human need inside a sleazy toilet in a rest area: Acting on impulse he takes the medication, when surprisingly the effect sets in instantly. Overjoyed he storms out to Lily – or at least he tries: The door is stuck. A desperate struggle begins inside and outside the toilet as well as inside Max' character: overwhelmingly celebrating the miracle he is experiencing, seeing himself in the mirror for the first time ever, but on the other hand being trapped inside a shabby toilet aside the expressway. As help is finally on its way, Max' vision begins to fade. His dream is coming to an end. Will it be fulfilled or denied?
