Sarah is drowning in old memories after the separation from her husband and seems to be falling behind in her personal development – but perhaps it is the beginning of a healing process of detachment. Toghiri’s second film tells the story of the failure of a great love from the retrospective of the most beautiful, most painful, most significant stages, in his very own style: fast and impatient, yet intimate and romantic, with a lot of love for his characters – young people who have the whole future ahead of them and yet cannot (yet) become happy.

Followed by a talk with the filmmaker!
