Life hasn’t been easy for Liam (Joshua Malik). His rough roots growing up have only taught him one destiny: a life turned towards crime. This is his fate, and he accepts it.
After a big score goes wrong, he is imprisoned. As he reminisces about the choices he has made up until this point, a police psychologist (Patricia Sluka) tries to get him on the right path.
Perhaps Liam is looking for a way to redeem himself from his past mistakes, or is everything not as simple as it seems?

A young wannabe sorceress goes to a party on the Gantrischsee, gets entangled in the local mythology and saves (with the help of the white deer) her friend, who poisoned himself during the party with a magic potion. On the other hand, no one seems to have coped with the confusion of Cupid’s arrow. The audience experiences an adventure in this short film–with one leg in the so-called reality, with the other one stuck ankle deep in the legendary world of Gantrisch. Action scenes alternate with contemplative calm and with landscape shots as beautiful as if they are not from this world. The story refers among other things to the legend “Helva and the magic net” and “the white deer”. (See books by Andreas Sommer)
Agathe decides with her lover to murder her husband Frank in order to get his money. But at the murder something goes wrong. An anonymous blackmailer has evidence of the murder and demands a large sum for his silence. At the money transfer, everything is clear. The lover was just played.
The year is 2054. James (Pauli Schmidig) appears, followed by bright flashes, in a phone booth. He awakens with paramnesia (a disorder of memory in which dreams or fantasies are confused with reality) and is only aware that he is traveling back in time in a time machine. In his pocket, James finds a note with the name and address of Gale (Julian T. Koechlin).
When James arrives at Gale’s apartment, he finds out he’s involved in building a time machine. Before James learns more, Gale’s apartment is stormed by the state army, led by Marek (Ralph Gygax). It seems that James’ arrival was already expected. As the only way out, he sees a journey back to the time he came. But when he meets Catherine (Monika Varga) and Brad (Daniel Ratthei) in search of help, everything changes.
When the 17-year-old NICO (Rebecca Thoss) suddenly meets the fugitive ALEKSANDR (Saladin Dellers), 22, on one of her excursions to the abandonned factory on the outskirts of the city, an unusual friendship develops. NICO’s mother, the 49-year-old gallery owner LYDIA (Delia Mayer), dislikes this friendship as much as NICO’s constant excursions and her edgy, unconventional manner of beeing.
Thus LYDIA tries to bind her daughter to herself by doggedly controlling her behavior.
A liberation story that criticizes the conformist, but also isolating aspects of our society. Not only from the sides of a rebel who wants to give everything to conquer her freedom, but also from the perspective of a desperate mother who fears being abandoned.
