At first glance, Leyla (Mala Emde) and Tristan (Jonas Dassler) seem like a happy young couple. But when they travel to a mysterious, remote island, they dare a body swap that changes everything. How does it feel to find yourself in someone else's body? What does that do to you, to your partnership, your soul life and your sexuality? Leyla in particular is happy in her new skin; she feels redeemed and filled with a completely new feeling of being alive. But when she refuses to return to her old "self", the situation gets out of control... A fascinating identity game that questions everything and is not without consequences.
