Our world in the near future. Public gatherings are prohibited, encounters with other people and cultural life can be experienced in cyberspace only. In an atmosphere dominated by threat and fear, the siblings Claire and Aurel are planning, against all odds, a clandestine live concert for a physically present audience. When their mother shows up unexpectedly, an age-old conflict erupts, and Claire is faced with an invincible opponent: herself. In the screenplay for her debut film, written in 2016, Lisa Charlotte Friedrich creates a dystopian world in lockdown long before the lockdown became a reality in 2020.
