Feature film | Coming of Age | 24 min.

Levi is sitting in his favorite pub, drinking beer and waiting. For his ex-girlfriend to come. Tonight he will do everything better. But he waits in vain, and when she doesn’t come and the mysterious Marla appears instead, the evening takes another turn. Levi lets himself be enchanted by Marla’s spontaneous nature and even leaves the pub with her. We follow them through the night. With every minute Levi spends with the stranger, things get more chaotic. Levi searches for answers without knowing what the question is. He follows Marla on her warm paths through the darkness, while he has lost himself in between.
